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.
The Swiss architect and designer couple Robert Haussmann (1931) and Trix Haussmann-Högl (1933) have been working together since 1967.
Robert studied at the Zurich School of Applied Arts, but also worked, amongs other jobs, for Gerrit Rietveld to broaden his skills. After the death of his father in 1955, Robert took over his furniture store with his brother Peter and mother Helene. Together with Peter, he opened a second shop in Zurich's Oberdorf in 1956 (Haussmann & Haussmann), where Robert's studio for interior architecture and product design was also located.
Trix, coming from a family of architects, studied architecture at the ETH Zurich. Her first in marriage interrupted her studies, but she resumed in 1959 and graduated in 1967.
