Taxi Fabric: Creative Project by Sanket Avlani – Design You Trust

Taxi Fabric: Creative Project by Sanket Avlani

Taxi Fabric” is a self-initiated project by London-based art director Sanket Avlani. The project is focused on creating a space for designers to show off their creative ideas using taxi seats as their canvas.

“Taxis in India, particularly in Mumbai, are not only the most convenient form of transport but have also become an iconic piece of culture. Although much attention is given to each taxi by its driver – to make it stand out from his competitors – very little thought is given to the fabric used on the seats. The designs that cover the taxi seats are often functional and forgettable and with the outstanding design talent Mumbai has to offer, this shouldn’t be the case.”

You can help Sanket expand the project by supporting the crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.
