Pieter Landman
President, Blooming Vision

In 1963, Pieter M. Landman was found behind a blooming tulip in the bulb-fields of his
parents in Breezand the Netherlands.

Decorating international floral shows around the world, sports events like Wimbledon,
royal palaces, society weddings, fashion shows, master-classes to florists as well to
royalties and children and presenting television programs about floral designing are a few

After closing down his flower shop in the nineties, Pieter concentrated himself more on

flowers, ceramics and packaging never forgetting the basic desire of the consumer.
