Venini, Paolo

(1895 - 1959)

Paolo Venini was an Italian designer and entrepreneur. In 1921 he and Giacomo Cappellin started a glass factory in Murano, the island in the Venice lagoon with a long tradition of glass production: Vetri Soffiati Muranesi Cappellin Venini & C. In 1925 Cappelin left the company and it was renamed to Venini & Co. The first art director of the company was Napoleone Martinuzzi, who was succeeded by Carlo Scarpa. Apart from leading the company, Venini also contributed to some designs.

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.
