Sluys, Cornelis van der

(1881 - 1944)

Cornelis van der Sluys was a Dutch furniture and textile designer, interior architect, ceramist and painter. He was trained as a painter at an art school in The Hague from 1984 to 1899, after which he started working as an artist for the Arts & Crafts company. In 1906 he started as an independent artist and designer in The Hague. He designed a wide range of products, like curtains and packaging and he quickly started to design furniture as well.

His early furniture was in the style of Rationalism, of which Hendrik Berlage was the most prominent Dutch proponent at the time. His work in the 1920s showed a development towards a Functionalist style.

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.
