CHAKRA, which in Sanskrit means wheel, is inspired by the stands used inside pressure cookers in India to raise vessels off the base and allow for even cooking. The Chakra trivet is spun out of copper or brass in five stages and comes as a set of three nesting pieces. We love this product’s ‘v’-profile, but also how little material it uses. It was designed so that any material left over from the spinning process could be used to make our AYASA jars.

Sold as a set of three, in brass or copper. They can be used a variety of ways to hold large and smaller dishes by either nesting or separating them.

We are a product design studio based between Bangalore and London.

India fascinates and inspires us. We think that there is more to Indian design than just sticking an elephant on it, and that Indian craft has more to offer than simply repeating the past.

India can seem a pretty chaotic place. But sitting there, quietly are some really incredible, super functional designs. The “designers” of these objects if they can be found at all, aren’t celebrated in the same way as they are in other countries. Instead design is seen as a bi-product of living. This unassuming approach, with an emphasis on a quiet functionality, is what inspires and drives our creative process.

At Tiipoi, we tell positive and insightful stories of a real India, that is changing and shifting all the time. We don’t want to tell nostalgic stories of its past. We prefer to look at what is happening right now, and highlight India’s role in contemporary design.
