Hagenauer, Karl

(1898 - 1956)

Karl Hagenauer (1898 - 1956) was an Austrian metalworker and designer. He studied architecture at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Vienna, under Josef Hofmann and Karl Strnad. His teacher Hofmann recognized his talent and let him execute some objects for the Wiener Werkstätte. In 1919 he joined the Werkstätte Hagenauer Wien, the company that was founded by his father Carl in 1989. When his father died in 1928, Karl and his brother Franz and sister Grete took over the workshop, with Karl as the director and main designer. He designed a wide array of objects, like small sculptures, candlesticks, mirrors and lamps.

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.
