We are proud of the collaborations with our partners and sponsors, who provide financial support to the museum or offer us other invaluable forms of support.
As partners of the Van Gogh Museum, Takii Seed (Japan), Heineken (the Netherlands) and Hyundai (South Korea) are all dedicated supporters of the museum.
Innovative Japanese breeder Takii Seed cultivates the world’s leading cut sunflower variety, the Sunrich Orange F1. Considering the clear link with Sunflowers, one of Van Gogh’s most famous paintings, Takii Seed and the Van Gogh Museum were destined to collaborate.
In 2015, Heineken and the Van Gogh Museum – two iconic Dutch brands – joined forces to create the Sunflower Collection bottles. The museum is tremendously proud of this collaboration. After all, both brands appeal to a dynamic, passionate audience that enjoys life to the full.
Jean-François van Boxmeer, Chair of the Executive Board and CEO of Heineken: ‘As a partner of the Van Gogh Museum, we support the cultural heritage of Amsterdam, the home of our namesake beer. We are proud to associate our company and our brand with a museum that has become an international destination in its own right’.
Hyundai became a partner of the Van Gogh Museum in 2016. The partnership with the museum dovetails perfectly with Hyundai’s vision of introducing a wider audience to the beauty of art and design.
The collaboration with Hyundai facilitated the production of three important Korean translations: of the visitor information on the museum website, the museum map and the multimedia guide.
Hyundai also made several models of the electric Hyundai IONIQ available to the Van Gogh Museum for use as company cars. Hyundai drew inspiration from Van Gogh’s world-famous masterpieces Sunflowers and Irises to create specially-designed editions of the cars.
The partnership with the museum offers Hyundai an inspirational means of raising awareness of their electric models.
We are also very proud of our sponsors:
KLM greatly values its partnership with the Van Gogh Museum and is delighted to fly artworks and visitors to Amsterdam on their way to the museum.
Sharing knowledge and learning from each other by creating the best possible customer experience is highly valuable to both the museum and KLM. The Van Gogh Museum’s extensive hospitality services enable KLM staff, who are renowned for going the extra mile, to offer their customers a unique guided tour or workshop at the museum.
KLM and the Van Gogh Museum both benefit from the added value of joint ventures on social media. KLM is proud to be able to contribute to the conservation and enrichment of the world’s largest collection of paintings by Van Gogh.
The world’s leading company in breeding and development of flowers and plants feels a strong connection to the art of Van Gogh and the Van Gogh Museum’s brand values.
Dümmen Orange’s plants and flowers also bring out the best in us. In beauty, joy, love, life and art: every day, flowers and plants inspire us to connect and share our emotions. They paint a vibrant, living canvas across the world.
Dümmen Orange’s mission is to unite the world through the language of flowers and plants, and they therefore fully understand the museum’s efforts to inspire the world with Van Gogh’s art. The success of Dümmen Orange is underpinned by the genuine commitment of its employees, its deep-rooted values and unsurpassed passion for absolute excellence.
