Larsen, Ejnar and Aksel Bender Madsen

(1916 - 2000)

Aksel Bender Madsen (1916 - 2000) and Ejner Larsen (1917 - 1987) were Danish furniture designers. Madsen, after training as a cabinetmaker, attended the Furniture School at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, graduating in 1940. After this, he worked for the architects Kaare Klint and Arne Jacobsen until 1943. Larsen followed the same trajectory and worked with Mogens Koch and Palle Suenson after graduating. The two, having met at the Academy, started their own design studio in 1947.

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.
