■ Product description

This is the earliest source boat of Arabia's famous Paratiisi. The Paratiisi series, which means paradise in Finnish, was designed by Birger Kaipiainen in 1969 at Arabia. In 1972, a monochrome version of the same name series was also designed. It is said that there was an intention to reduce the cost of coloring in the background. Paratiisi was discontinued in 1974, but the series with the same name was reprinted in 1988.

Since 1988, there has been a difference in backstamps even in Finnish natives, pansies are no longer drawn, and oven to safe and microwave safe are written in English around the Arabic mark. Currently, Paratiisi is manufactured in reprints, but all are made in Thailand.

This is the original source boat built in 1969. "9 - 69" on the back stamp represents the month and year of manufacture.

■ 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.
