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.

KOSA translates broadly from the Sanskrit as vessel – but can also mean pocket, sheath or covering. Our inspiration for this jar came from the typical ‘Iota’ vessels used to hold water, either for drinking, washing or for religious rituals. The ‘Iota’ has long been romanticized as an icon of Indian design and was celebrated by the Eames in their 1958 India Report. Taken out of context these containers tend to hold an exclusively nostalgic value instead of being understood for their design integrity. We wanted to translate them into functional everyday objects, in the same way the original ‘Iotas’ were.

Meet The Designer

Founded in 2013 by Spandana Gopal, Tiipoi is a London based design studio and brand. It was founded on the thinking that there is more to Indian design than just sticking an elephant on something, 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.
