How it all began
Bellman, after the Swedish composer Carl-Michael Bellman, was founded and registered in 1989 by Peter Jungvid. The same year, the company's first product Bellman Ringer won TRRs competition for new ideas. The device's functionality received high praise from the reference group, but it was found somewhat lacking in looks, and was even compared to a “1950's Russian radio”.
Peter Jungvid sought assistance from an industrial designer, Professor Jan Hampf, who shaped the distinctive design that to this day defines a Bellman product.
