Wenger, Daniel L.

After college, Daniel Wenger worked as a computer programmer with the US Space Program from its inception in 1957. He returned to school in 1963 to obtain a PhD in theoretical physics, followed by a period as a professor of physics. During this time, continuing his life-long enjoyment of working with his hands, he developed his skill with leather and steel. Inspired by a chair from his childhood home in Brentwood, California, he directed his design aesthetic to make a chair using leather and steel. He created his Lotus chair in 1969 while living in Topanga Canyon, California. The success of the Lotus chair, his first furniture piece, brought about a major change in his life. He decided to leave the academic world and to immerse himself in design and fabrication.

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.
