Globalization, along with its manifold impact in varied spheres, has paved the way for cuisines of different countries to tantalize out taste buds. Sitting in one corner of the world, one can freely indulge in a Mexican delicacy or enjoy a sumptuous Chinese lunch. As is understandable, the utensils used in making these varied dishes from different countries are different. Keeping this is mind, Doshi Levien came up with suitable pots for cooking cuisines of different countries, after 6 months of through research. Doshi Levien happens to be a design office based in London, named after the perpetrators, Jonathan Levien and Nipa Doshi.
While Nipa contributes to their production the flavor of Indian visual and material culture, Jonathan takes care of the practicality of industrial production. Consequently, the signature style of Doshi Levien has emerged as a refreshing fusion of the East and the West, and makes full use of technology, story telling, industrial design and craftsmanship.
After the installation design for the Wellcome Trust, interaction design for Intel, product design for Tefal, furniture design for Moroso and shoe design for London based ‘aristo’ bootmakers John Lobb, Doshi Levien’s latest brainchild is a facsinating range of pots, each different from the other, and each particularly meant for cooking the cuisine of a particular country. While the Mosaic Tajine, with a conical lid, is perfect for cuisins from Morocco, Mosaic Karhai is fitted to Indian cooking. One can make delectable Chinese spread with the Mosaic Wok and use the open Mosaic Fajita to cook Mexican.
