Tiipoi is London based design studio doing Indian Design. Tiipoi Talks are an on-going talks programme curated by Manijeh Verghese (Head of Public Programme at the Architectural Association) and Spandana Gopal (Founder of Tiipoi).

The programme aims to start new conversations and encourage a deeper and more critical way of asking questions around contemporary practice by bringing together designers, artists, architects and cultural commentators with a view to debate the power of objects, crafts-based practice and the role of context in shaping projects and ideas. By inviting a diverse set of practitioners, we hope to situate these discussions within a more inclusive reading of history and the disciplinary canon we operate within. Through a cross-pollination of different forms of practice and backgrounds, the talks hope to bring to the foreground a more rigorous dialogue around making and sharing work in a changing London.

The first in this series of two talks addresses The Object. This conversation will explore how we read history as told through the objects we collect. How can objects come to define cultures, or form an understanding of our identity?

Natalie Kane (Curator of Design and Digital at the V&A), Seetal Solanki (Author and Founder of Ma-tt-er) and Shezad Dawood (Artist) will participate in the discussion chaired by Manijeh Verghese (Head of the AA Public Programme)
