Art & objects

Ronald van der Hilst only started with product design in 2005 and since then his collection of ‘tulip designs’ includes tulip vases for Val Saint Lambert crystal and Mobach Ceramics, hand painted tiles by Ceramica Bardelli, and floor prints for Xilo1934. The crystal tulip vase "Bulbe" has been added to the tulip vase collection of the Dutch Queen Beatrix.

His tulip vases have been exhibited in the Paleis Het Loo National Museum and the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, among others, and they are much sought after by master florists. In collaboration with Antwerp fashion designers, Ronald van der Hilst made tulip garments, created murals, reliefs, sculptures, jewellery, illustrations, and of course gardens, all with the tulip as a theme.

Ronald van der Hilst designed tulip settings for the historical gardens of the Rubens House and the Plantin Moretus Museum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For the 2011 International Garden Expo in Qong-Qing, he designed a tulip pavilion for the Antwerp exhibit.
