Acking, Carl-Axel

(1910 - 2001)

Carl-Axel Acking was a Swedish architect, furniture designer, writer and teacher. He received his architectural training in Stockholm from 1931 to 1939. During his training he worked for the renowned architect Erik Gunnar Asplund. In 1937 he took part in the World Exposition of Paris and in New York in 1939.

From 1939 to 1955 he had an architectural firm with Sven Hesselgren. From 1955 into the 1980s he had his own firm. His furniture was typically produced by Nordiska Kompaniet. Early in his career he also designed for Knut Lindquist AB and Svenska Möbelfabrikerna, Bodafors.

For nearly two decades, the collection of Bloomberry has been driven by the cultural reference between architecture, art and design.

The quality of our collection is reflected in the sophistication of craftsmanship and the character of the scars of time. Our restoration workshops are built around the same principal and work to the highest degree of craftsmanship.

Bloomberry is housed in a former textile factory and is located near Maastricht, in the south of The Netherlands. Within an hour of Antwerp and Cologne. Within two hours from Amsterdam and four hours from Paris.

Bloomberry offers worldwide shipping.
