Inkeri Leivo – Arabia Finland – Pudas Arctica

The design featured here is “Pudas Arctica” by Inkeri Leivo (1944-2010), which is a variation of her now 20th Century design classic “Arctica” – which is still in production today.

The design for Arctica began in 1975 and was in production by 1979. Pudas Arctica was in production up until c1981.

Arctica has continued to evolve, with new variations even now still being added by current designers.

Arctica was designed as a large dinner service including baking dishes, tureen etc.  The design featured a slimmer and more elegant profile than previous Arabia designs due to new technologies.

The roundness of the design while being very contemporary, also alludes to the elegant forms of the 1930’s Art Deco era.

Inkeri had began her career in Arabia in 1971, and her clean, light and graceful designs were a change from the heavier forms coming out of Arabia Finland in the 1970s.  Amongst others, Inkeri also designed the popular “Saaristo”, “Kombi” “Harlekiini” & “Uhtua” lines.
