Chakra Trivets 

$59

CHAKRA, which in Sanskrit means ‘wheel’, is inspired by the stands used inside Indian pressure cookers to raise cooking off the base and allow for even cooking. Our trivet sets are spun out of copper or brass in five stages and are designed so any material left over from the process is used to make our AYASA jars. Sold in a set of three, our CHAKRA brass or copper trivets can be used to hold large and smaller dishes by either nesting or separating them.

Use the three small bowls, large bowl and circular tray separately or together as a set. Each SEVA item is finished with natural beeswax and is food-safe.

Sama Pink tray 

$39

* Our SAMA Colour Trays are produced in small batches and don’t have any holes we can use to hold them in place while they are being powder-coated. As a result there are two small pin-sized uncoated points near the edges of the handles. Please contact us if you have any concerns.

    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.
