Frattini, Gianfranco

(1926 - 2004)

Gianfranco Frattini graduated with a degree in architecture from the Politecnico di Milano in 1953. He opened his own professional practice in Milan, after having worked in the office of his teacher and mentor Giò Ponti. His collaboration with the Cassina company started in 1954, followed by collaborations with manufacturers, such as Bernini, Arteluce, Knoll and others. In 1956 he co-founded Associazione per il Disegno Industriale and throughout his career he practiced both industrial design and architecture, focusing mostly on interiors.

Bloomberry is an antiques dealer specialized in exquisite twentieth century design, founded in 2005 by Patricia Keurentjes and Leander Meerman. Our strength is that we read the past differently and do have a keen eye for yet little known masterpieces. Our company is housed in a former textile factory that spans 5.000 square meters. It is located just near Maastricht, in the south of the Netherlands, within two hours from Amsterdam, Bruxelles and Cologne. Only part of the collection is shown on the website. A visit -  by appointment only - gives you the full insight.
