Wirkkala, Tapio

(1915 - 1985)

Tapio Wirkkala was one of the most important and diverse Finnish designers. His contribution to design includes everything from glass products to the design of banknotes and graphic art.

In 1946 Wirkkala won his first design award in a competition organized by Iittala. He was made artistic director of the firm and began a lifelong relationship with the company. During his career, Wirkkala has participated in many international exhibitions and was the artistic director of the University of Arts and Design in Helsinki for many years.

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.
