■ Product introduction This is a vintage 21cm oval plate from Arabia's Finnish company Paratiisi. The Paratiisi series, which means paradise in Finnish, was designed by Birger Kaipiainen in 1969. In 1972, a monochrome version of the same name series was also designed. Paratiisi was discontinued in 1974, but the series with the same name was reprinted in 1988. However, since 1988, there has been a difference in the form of Finnish products, and the plate has been changed from an oval shape to a round shape. This is a vintage oval plate made in Finland in the 1970s. It is characterized by a leaf protruding like a feather on the left side of the logo.

Currently, Paratiisi is manufactured in reprints, but all are made in Thailand. The characteristics of the reprinted version are that the surface paint color is clear and dark, and the whiteness of the base also stands out. The paint of the original version is a light color, and there are individual differences in the color of each plate.

■ About Birger Kaipiainen

Birger Kaipiainen

Birger Kaipiainen (1915-1988 )

Born in Pori, southwestern Finland, on the coast of the Gulf of Bothnia. Finland's leading designer, known as the "King of Decorators". Although his family moved to Helsinki when he was young, Kaipiainen spent every summer in Russia.

Stay in a homestay in a town called Sortavala. The sense of nature and artistry nurtured there will influence him for the rest of his life. When Kaipiainen was young, he suffered from polio, which left him walking with a cane for the rest of his life. He was unable to turn a potter's wheel on his own due to a disability in one hand, but it is said that this actually served as an opportunity for him to hone his artistic sense.

Kaipiainen graduated from Finland's premier art university, Aalto University, and joined Arabia in 1937. From 1954, he also transferred to Rorstrand in Sweden for four years. In the heyday of simple and unadorned Nordic modern art, Kaipiainen's designs are rich in decorativeness and are characterized by detailed depictions drawn to every corner. He has built a unique worldview that stands out from the mainstream of the times, designing Paratish in 1969, Apia in 1970, and Sunnuntai in 1971. Both are still reprinted editions of Arabia, and have become flagship products.
