Bungalow5_Tiipoi_1

Spandana Gopal er en kvinde på en mission for at ændre vores opfattelse af Indisk design. Hendes firma, Tiipoi – et brand, der var på ruten på vores Blogger Tour London for et par uger siden – har skabt en række produkter, som udfordrer de vestlige klichéer, som ofte er forbundet med Indisk design.

Tiipoi kollektionen er en samling af traditionelle indiske materialer, som kobber og messing, og processer, men med et moderne æstetisk twist. Tiipoi arbejder med regionale eksperter over hele Indien til at fremstille deres produkter.

Tiipoi kommer fra ordet TIINPAI – en tre benet skammel, som British India fik tolket til at være et bord, hvor man kunne servere te (“teapoy”).

 

Spandana Gopal is a woman on a mission to change our perception of Indian design. Her company, Tiipoi – a brand that was on the itinerary on our Bloggers Tour London a few weeks back – has created a range of homeware products that challenge Western clichés, which is often connected to Indian design.

The Tiipoi collection is an appreciation of traditional materials, like copper and brass, and processes, albeit with a modern aesthetic twist. Tiipoi are working with regional experts across India to manufacture their products. 

Tiipoi comes from the word TIINPAI – a three legged stool that British India interpreted to being a table on which tea is served (“Teapoy”).
