This year during London Design Festival 2015, London based design studio and accessories brand Tiipoi launched new collections infused with colour, including powder-coated tableware and their first collection of handwoven rugs and cushions.
We first spotted the London based design studio at Design Junction 2014 and then again at Clerkenwell Design Week 2015.
Tiipoi invited long term collaborator Foxall Studio to take over their stand at Design Junction during London Design Festival with remote controlled smoke and colour, as part of Tiipoi’s new colour collections – to convey a type of unabashed excitement unique to India. The interactive installation allowed people to control coloured smoke on screens through a suspended remote.
Tiipoi’s first collection of textiles includes handwoven rugs and cushions in 100% cotton, dyed in organic dyes inspired by the tradition of ‘Jamakhan’ or ‘Jamakalam’ weaving in Erode – the textile centre of Southern India. Historically, the patterns of these floor coverings from the region have been a series of horizontal lines in stark colours that created strong optical patterns.
The new collections include a range of powder coated tableware. Made by a process known as metal spinning, each container is manually spun by a specialist on a traditional spinning machine, hand finished and then powder coated.
