Turin from Sunnuntai produced in small quantities in the 1970s by Arabia, a tableware manufacturer representing Finland. Sunnun Thai is well known for its oval plate, but this is an extremely rare Sunnun Thai soup turing (pot for sharing). Sunnuntai comes in two colors, yellow and red, but red seems to have been produced in a relatively small number, so there is almost no distribution in the vintage market. In addition, turin is produced in small numbers, and red turin is highly rare.

The Sunnun Thai was only manufactured for three years from 1971 to 1974, and was long out of production. In recent years, reprinted editions have been resold. However, Turin has never been reprinted, so it is only available as a vintage item. There are 3 sizes of Sunnuntai Turin, but this is the largest size with a capacity of about 2 liters.

■ 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 spends each summer in a homestay in the Russian town of 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 Aalto University, Finland's premier art 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. These are still the reprinted editions of the ARABIA brand and are the flagship products.
