Born in Tehran, Iran in 1982, Taher currently lives between Tehran, Dubai and New York. Taher is a self-taught designer motivated to imagine objects, textiles and experiences. To date, he has created interiors, events, and lifestyle artifacts. His latest project is an electrifying take on modern kilim.
After Multimedia and Management studies between Canada and Switzerland and inspired by art from a young age, he opened a creative agency in Tehran, later expanding it to New York City. Juggling between various creative disciplines with particular interest in architecture, design and interiors, he started to self-produce limited edition objects. Asad-Bakhtiari seeks to reintroduce the traditional Iranian crafts while imbuing it with a contemporary functionality.
