Bloomming is founded by Bas van Leeuwen and Mireille Meijs. They met during their study at the Design Academy in The Netherlands. For the duo, Bloomming means spring and blossom. Inspired by the world in which we live their designs are made to surprise. The approach differences each time, but all their designs and products are fit in a collection the duo likes to call 'Industrial Poetry'.Read our story
I specified the Facet Screen Room Divider when the lead time for the original design screen would not arrive, in time, for the completion date. I was so pleased with the quick turn around, and the wonderful customer service. This product saved the day for me. The client was pleased, and as a designer, that is always the goal. Thanks again, this is a great product and wonderful company.

Watches have long ceased to be the only instrument for determining the time. The clock Delay by Bas van Leeuwen is amazingly similar to the drawings of Leonardo da Vinci. A challenge to our "disposable culture" where we tend to live in a hurry, buy stuff we don't need and trash them early. We seemed to have lost the taste and interest in technology. Clock Delay brings that feeling of appreciation back. There are three majestic gears which rotate with the ticking of time: hours, minutes and seconds. These circles meet at one point where you can read the current time. Appreciate to read the time: it is much easy to be distracted by the fascinating process how this clock works!

Flawless, Simple & Impressive
Facet room dividers: overall faultless! Very quick shipping. Environmentally sound packaging. Classy, simple instructions and communication material. Managed to install the product myself quite easily. LOOKS FANTASTIC of course; striking without being OTT. Speedy, friendly customer service when assistance with a further order was requested. I love dealing with companies who are brilliant at what they do, and Bloomming is exactly that.

Innovative And Interesting System
Bloomming in Dutch refers to flowers blooming in the Spring; it is also the name of a company that manufactures some wonderfully interesting articles. The innovative room divider Facet, for example is an interesting modular system available in any dimension.

Is That The Time? No, Really Is It?
Contrary to appearances, this rather scare-looking aluminium and steel contraption - designed by one Bas van Leeuwen for Dutch design studio Bloomming and christened the Clock Delay - is intended to serve a strictly benign purpose, namelijk that of measuring time. How? Upon its three cogwheels, labelled hours, minutes and seconds, you'll notice a series of numbers running along the outside edge of each. Observe the points where the three meet each other, and there's your time. Yes, we quite agree, as clocks go it's hardly when you'd call practical. Yet there's something hypnotic and compelling about its elegant mechanism, plus it's a potentially great conversation starter. Just make sure that small childeren, pets and the inebriated don't get too close...
