About Me

Welcome to Tahir Mahmood Designs, a place where creativity is not just imagined but meticulously brought to life, bridging the realms of art and design. I am Tahir Mahmood, a designer based in Toronto, with a fervent passion for the diverse spheres of creative arts and design that has been my companion and guide for over three decades.

My journey commenced in the vibrant corridors of art direction, set design, and production design, traversing the dynamic landscapes of movies, TV commercials, and music videos. This rich tapestry of experiences has not only honed my aesthetic sensibilities but also deeply ingrained in me the value of collaboration and the magic of handmade craftsmanship. Working alongside master craftsmen from around the globe and partnering with local artisans in the Greater Toronto Area, I have come to cherish the unique skills and the unspoken languages of creativity that bind us.

Drawing inspiration from the minimalist elegance of the 1920s German Bauhaus movement and the intricate majesty of 16th-century Mughal architecture from my Indian heritage, my design philosophy is a symphony of contrasts. It is here, in the confluence of modernism's clean lines and the historical opulence of ornate beauty, that my post-modern designs take form, alive with vibrant hues and captivating narratives.

The year 2009 marked a pivotal moment in my career as I ventured into the realm of product design, introducing my creations to the world at the Interior Design Show in Toronto, Canada. This bold step was soon followed by acclaim in 2010, when my innovative mortar and pestle design was honored with the prestigious Design Exchange Award. This accolade not only affirmed my design path but also propelled me to explore and innovate further across a diverse product range.

Today, I invite you to explore a curated selection of my recent work, each piece a testament to the fusion of functionality and visual allure. From ceramic bird feeders that beckon the serenity of nature, to the meticulously crafted mortar and pestles, each design embodies my philosophy of blending utility with beauty.

However, my quest for creativity is an ever-evolving journey. By joining my mailing list, you will be among the first to discover my latest projects and have the exclusive opportunity to bring these new designs into your space.
