About Tahir Mahmood

Radically simplified forms and angular silhouettes are typical of Tahir Mahmood’s work. From his early days of designing he showed an understanding of how mass-produced items could be reconciled with aesthetic details and purity of materials. Mahmood’s awareness of the German design school Bauhaus was not far removed from his own desire of finding a visual language relevant to the social and cultural environment of his own upbringing.

Tahir has achieved recognition for numerous design ventures including the well-received interactive project called ‘Another Love Seat’ that was showcased at the Gladstone Annual Exhibition “Come up To My Room” 2008, in Toronto, Canada.  In 2010, the art installation called ‘World without water’ was part of the Code Live exhibition at the Vancouver Olympics 2010 and in the same year Tahir won the Design Exchange Award for his mortar and pestle design.
