The 'Tulip Bells' are based on the classical parrot tulips but reversed in their design. It means that the blooms are upside down and the coloring is reversed.
The shape and the bendable stems are inspired by moving waves and dancing figurines. The colors are inspired by the old Danish Skagen painters that lived from the 1870s until the turn of the century. Skagen was a summer destination whose scenic nature attracted northern artists to paint in the open landscapes, emulating the French Impressionists.
'Krøyer', one of the best-known of the Skagen painters, was inspired by the light of the evening "Blue Hour", which made the water and sky seem to merge optically. This light of blue combined with soft evening sky nuances such as red, beige, yellow, and green, has been a big inspiration in the creation of the Tulip Bells.
