Paratiisi

The enchanting Paratiisi series designed by Birger Kaipiainen is a well loved Arabia classic. Paratiisi combines strong, subtle design with rich decoration.The artistry of Paratiisi is bold and grand – the artist's personality lives on in the decorations. The clear colours of the decorations are testament to Kaipiainen's unique skill of combining colours. It only takes one Paratiisi object to bring a new atmosphere to the table and turn an everyday meal into a celebration.

BIRGER KAIPIAINEN

Professor Birger Kaipiainen (1915-88) was one of Finland’s best-known ceramic artists. He spent most of his 50-year career creating unique art ceramics in Arabia’s art department. Kaipiainen’s colour-saturated, lush yet refined art inspired his contemporaries to call him "the prince of ceramics" and "the king of decorators". Kaipiainen received the honorary title of Professor in 1977.

MICROWAVE SAFE

All Arabia utility wares except dishes with gold or platinum decoration or metal parts are microwave safe.

FREEZER SAFE

DISHWASHER SAFE

All Arabia utility wares are dishwasher safe except dishes decorated with gold or platinum. Use a rinsing agent in the dishwasher to improve the results. Very dirty dishes can be soaked in hot water with detergent containing bleach. Cutlery made of soft steel, especially knives, may leave streaks of metal on a hard glazed surface that cannot be removed in a normal wash. (These can be removed by rubbing gently with metal polish.) Check the quality of cutlery when you buy it. To protect the glazing, avoid heavy rubbing when, for example, stacking plates.
