Jakobsson, Hans-Agne

(1919 - 2009)

Hans-Agne Jakobsson was a Swedish interior decorator and designer. After finishing an apprenticeship as a carpenter, he studied architecture in Gothenburg and began his career as an industrial designer at General Motors. After this, he became an assistant to the prominent furniture designers Carl Malmsten and Werner West. In 1951 he founded his own company, Hans-Agne Jakobsson AB, in Markaryd. There he not only created lighting designs but also candlesticks, pieces of furniture and other objects.

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.
