Kosa

glass jar

description

Our inspiration for this jar came from the Indian ‘lotas’ used to hold water for drinking, washing or religious rituals. Our take on the vessel references its tapering shape but updates it with contemporary geometries. KOSA jars are available in two sizes and two colours. The vessels are made in Firozabad in Uttar Pradesh, a town famous for its glass factories. The lids are made out of Sheesham, an indigenous and sustainably-sourced hardwood, and cork to keep the jars airtight.

*The pink-coloured glass is mouth blown into a mould so there will be a slight variation in thickness because the different craftspeople working on each one. The clear jars are made out of borosilicate glass and are pressed industrially.

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.
