Mumbai's Mind Blowing Taxi Interiors

Mumbai's yellow and black Premier Padmini taxis are iconic but designers Sanket Avlani, Mahak Malik, Nathalie Gordon and Girish Narayandas of Taxi Fabric thought the cabs needed a design makeover. They started connecting designers to taxi-owners in a bid to turn taxi seats into canvases for talented designers. The results are extraordinary.

Shaivalini Kumar designed this taxi fabric as a tribute to Mumbai’s diverse
architectural styles—a blend of Victorian, Art Deco, Gothic, Indo-Saracenic
and contemporary.

For this piece, designer Sameer Kulavoor visualized the city of Mumbai as
objects, aided by his fascination with how the design around them changes
with culture and geography.
