About the artist: Liisa Vitali got the inspiration for the »Gardenia« series from seeing the blooming gardenias outside her hotel during a stay in London. Ideas often came to Liisa Vitali on a whim. The fluidity of the design is also easy to associate with forest pools and raindrops. The series was introduced in 1974 and became very popular, especially in the Nordic countries.
