BBPR, Studio

The architectural firm BBPR was started in 1932 by partners Gian Luigi Banfi, Ludovico Belgiojoso, Enrico Peressutti and Ernesto Rogers. After Banfi’s death in 1945 they continued to work under the acronym BBPR. The partnership’s activities included architecture, city planning and interior design.

BBPR was part of the Italian Modernist movement (Razionalismo) of the 1930s, but their most famous work, the Torre Velasca in Milan (1956-58) incorporated more traditional Italian architectural elements.

In the area of design they have produced very innovative office furniture for Olivetti, the silver teapot service for Calderoni and the Emma handle for Olivari.

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.
