Products Used

The Henry Madden Library at Fresno State University used Banker Wire’s DS-5 opaque woven wire mesh in the grand staircase. The slightly transparent nature of the mesh makes the staircase appear as if it is floating – an aesthetic that is very rarely seen, especially in metal.

The pattern is a smooth and flowing four-wire weave that allows for constantly changing reflective characteristics at oblique angles. The weave pattern also matches well with the overall theme of the library: a twined American-Indian cooking basket, conveying a tribal belief that baskets are containers of knowledge.
