Dominioni, Luigi Caccia

(1913 - 2016)

Luigi Caccia Dominioni was a Milaneses architect and designer. He graduated in architecture from the Polytechnic of Milan in 1936. In 1947, he and other young Milanese architects - Corrado Corradi Dell'Acqua, Ignazio Gardella, Maria Teresa and Franca Tosi - decided to manufacture their own furniture with Azucena. They wanted to compile a catalogue of furnishing items (everything from sofas to tables and door handles) for the buildings they were designing. The result was a harmonious relationship between the structure and the furnishing.

They strove for a synthesis of rational mass production and refined craftsmanship, combining modern materials – like chrome – with more traditional materials.

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.
