Gunvor Olin Gronqvist
Born in Helsinki. Joined ARABIA in 1951 and was in charge of design for a long time until 1993 . Her representative designs include “Tea for Two” , which is inspired by autumn flowers, “Kosmos” series, which has abstract maroon vertical lines, “Fructus” , which depicts an apple cut in half, and sauna mug series. And even now, there are many fans. In addition to the mass production line, he is in charge of the art department called Ateljer GOG , and also supervises the production of hand-painted pottery called GOG works, which are unique to each piece. The use of paint colors is unique, and you can see the sense of color with shadows unique to Scandinavian vintage tableware.
