Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Siment is a collection of planters and vases inspired by urban infrastructure in present-day India. It’s also about how, in India, concrete is often transformed from a purely functional material into an opportunity for decoration. As we started creating typologies of the water towers we came across in India, we found no two to be the same. Our response was to come up with three styles – which we called Watertower 1, 2 and 3 – that broadly reflected the forms or functions of the structures we came across most frequently. The functional and architectural features of these towers, such as the ladders, windows and stairs, have been turned into miniaturised decorative elements. Each design was 3D-printed, the moulds made out of silicone and the pieces cast in concrete.

Artist Profile

Born: 2014

Hometown: Bangalore and London

Based in: Bangalore and London

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.
