Gardella, Ignazio

(1905 - 1999)

Ignazio Gardella (1905 - 1999) was an Italian architect and designer. He graduated with a degree in engineering from the Politecnico di Milano in 1928. A year later he started to work on his first design, a churh in Alessandria, In the same town he built the Anti-tuberculosis dispensary of 1938. Both buildings are examples of his early, Rationalist work, after which he developed a less sober style, like the Casa Cicogna alle Zattere, Venice (1958 - 62).

In 1947 he co-founded the furniture and lighting company Azucena with fellow architects Luigi Caccia Dominioni and Corrado Corradi Dell’Acqua.

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.
