Rado, Ladislav

(1909 - 1993)

Ladislav Leland Rado was a Slovak-American architect and designer. He was born in Slovakia (then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire) and he studied architecture in Prague. He graduated in 1934 and was hired by an architectural studio in Brno. The architect Walter Gropius met Rado when visiting Brno and invited him to study at Harvard, where Gropius was the chairman of the architecture department. In 1945 Rado and Czech-born architect Antonin Raymond opened an architectural firm in New York. Some of the buildings they designed are the American Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, 2 Hammarskjold Plaza in Manhattan and the Federal Office Building in Albany.

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.
