For the second edition of the Immersion Garden at the world’s oldest tulip festival, Tulip Time in Holland, MI, IGMPR introduced the Delftware floral benches with patterns designed by Heinen Delfts Blauw and Pepijn van den Nieuwendijk. Another great addition were over 30 large interpretation displays with artwork visuals collected from museums all over the world, explaining the Journey of the Tulip – how it travelled from East to West – , and tulip art and culture in the Netherlands. During 8 days we received thousands of visitors each day and had sold-out weekends and rave reviews. We let the images and video’s speak for itself!
In March 2023, Parco Sigurtà added another painting of its founder Enzo Sigurtà to its collection of Immersive Blooming Objects created by IGMPR. With specifically forced tulips and hyacinths the installation was a colourful and fragrant surprise for visitors this early in the season.
Our Immersive Blooming Object has landed for the first time in Parco Sigurtà. It has been an honor to set the beautiful painting of Enzo Inga Sigurtà into bloom! Visitors to the Tulipanomania Festival could experience tulips up close and personal for this first time, and create beautiful selfies. Check out the video!
Floral Celebration of 50 years Diplomatic Relations between the Netherlands and China
What started as an idea in late 2021 has come to bloom! In cooperation with the diplomatic network of the Netherlands in China and with the support of sponsors, local governments and partners, IGMPR will design, build and implement an Immersive Blooming Object based on the celebration logo, that will travel to 9 cities in China in 2022.
On 29 January the first implementation opened to the public in the beautiful Yuntai Garden in Guangzhou. Untill 20 February , over 120.000 visitors enjoyed the power of flowers and beautiful images were widely shared across (social) media.
Right after the Guangzhou we moved the installation to the city center of megapolis Chongqing, and 4 more cities will follow until May.
There is so much to share about the impact, the technicalities, the flowers, the organization, but we let these images speak for itself.
For the first time in 5 years IGMPR was not able to join the opening of the Tulip Festival in Dafeng Holland Flower Park, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. Nevertheless we were glad our support in the preparations paid off with blooming tulips and activities. A special congratulatory speech was given by the Dutch Ambassador Wim Geerts and South-Holland’s Deputy vice-governor Adri Bom-Lemstra by video.
A report on the festival and the impact of COVID-19 on operations in the Dafeng Holland Flower Park was recently published by Flora Culture International.
