Hjorth, Axel Einar

(1888 - 1959)

Axel Einar Hjorth was a Swedish furniture designer. After attending the Högre Konstindustriella Skolan, the renowned Stockholm arts institution, Hjorth began designing for a number of furniture manufacturers, including the Stockholm department store Nordiska Kompaniet, where he led the design office and furniture department from 1926 to 1938.  After this, he went into business for himself, including a showroom for his designs and an architectural office, which he would maintain through the 1940s.

Together with Carl Malmsten, Carl Hörvic, and others of his generation, Hjorth contributed to the flowering of Swedish design and its international recognition in the 1920s. While Hjorth's earlier designs were neoclassical and made with extravagant materials, his designs in the late 1920's combined a Swedish vernacular aesthetic with modernism. 

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.
