Penaat, Willem

(1875 - 1957)

Penaat has always devoted himself to the development of a new furniture and interior design. Like Hendrik Petrus Berlage, Jac. van den Bosch and Karel de Bazel he designed  simple furniture with a clear construction. The development of his furniture shows a meticulous pursuit of an optimal end result, whereby the wishes of the users, simple manufacturing and a contemporary form were the most important criteria. Penaats furniture and interiors are more sober than those of like-minded colleagues.

Bloomberry is about beauty in craftmanship; Craftmanship In design, in the collection, the inhouse atelier and in attitude. To the two owners and founders, Bloomberry is a living sculpture where the synergy between the collection, the staff and the market makes Bloomberry such an exciting place. Only part of the collection is shown on the website, a visit to the store gives you the full insight. Being antique dealers with a focus on unique 20th Century design pieces, they like to describe their task as modern archeology.
