Flowergram Sunflower edition, bloomon x Van Gogh Museum®
The Van Gogh Museum and bloomon are partnering to present the Flowergram Sunflower edition: an original arrangement of dried flowers inspired by Sunflowers (1889). Together, bloomon and the Van Gogh Museum are literally and figuratively placing the story behind Van Gogh’s masterpiece on a pedestal.
The Flowergram Sunflower edition is a carefully composed selection of dried flowers inspired by the works of Vincent van Gogh. With 12 stems all together, the design includes wheat grass, cornflowers, nigella seed heads and of course sunflowers, all of a high quality and dried exclusively for bloomon. Even outside sunflower season, Vincent’s favourite sunflowers invariably steal the show. The accompanying wooden stand has space for nine dried flowers and lets you tap your own creativity to create a variety of compositions. And because the Flowergram is made to fit through the letterbox, it can be delivered at any time – whether to your home to brighten up your interior or as a gift or thank-you to someone else.
Like many of his contemporaries, Vincent van Gogh delighted in painting flowers. Yet he was one of the few to cast sunflowers as the protagonists in several of his floral compositions. Compared to traditional, darker flower still lifes, his Sunflowers are explosions of colour. Also unusual is that he depicted not only flowers in full bloom, but also withered flowers, which he found beautiful in the same way that a weathered face may be beautiful. For Vincent, sunflowers were also especially meaningful as symbols of inspiration, friendship and gratitude.
The perfect gift through the letterbox • Extend the Sunflower season and bring the sun into your home with the Flowergram Sunflower edition • Available in limited quantities • The dried flowers remain best when they are not placed in direct sunlight or a place that is too moist. In this case, they can stand for months • The fascinating yellow hues of the sunflower are also echoed in the stylish packaging and flower card.
