This week, the traditional fruit bowl is turned on its head. We’re excited to give you an exclusive sneak peek into OTHR’s latest launch: Loup, by Bangalore, India-based designer Saif Faisal.
3D printed in black or white porcelain, Loup takes a fresh look at an everyday object.
Its abstract shape only expresses its function when occupied; when left empty, its purpose is up to the user’s imagination. Whether on the mantle or in use, this pared-down kitchen tool adds a subtle elegance to any room.
A container to all, Loup uses simplicity and versatility to put any object on display, from cuisine to memorabilia.
Faisal is part of a generation of Indian designers designing opposite the pervading sensibility of ‘Jugaad,’ a culture of work-around solutions. Instead, he focuses on quality and longevity in his work; one of a growing movement of “avant-garde designers with fresh perspective taking a sensible and progressive attitude towards design.”
Get your early edition of Loup here before it goes on sale to everyone else this Thursday.
