Nyman, Gunnel

(1909 - 1948)

Gunnel Anita Nyman (née Gustafsson, 1909 - 1948) was a Finnish designer and glass and metal artist. She studied furniture design at the Central School of the Industrial Arts in Helsinki. She created metalwork for churches, but also designed furniture and the lighting for Helsinki's Swedish Theater. She started working as a designer for Taito, Paavo Tynell’s lighting company in 1932 and worked there for five years. She also worked for Idman and Orno.

After the war she transitioned to designing glass objects. In 1951, Gunnel Nyman was posthumously awarded a gold medal for glass work at the IX Milan Triennale.

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.

Bloomberry offers worldwide shipping.
