The essence:

Zinnia is for people who take life too seriously, can‘t take a joke and look at the world with sober eyes. Life takes place in their head, not their (social) environment.

Often there are intellectuals, their logical and analytical skills are well developed at the expense of joy and spontaneity. Zinnia teaches that there is more than just the cool head, rules, order, reason and mathematics - what about no fantasy, fun and laughter of life?


Zinnia brings back the lost enjoyment of life, reminds one of the joy one experienced in childhood and links it to the here and now.
