Tabitha Purathur

MA work

Tabitha is a frisky night creature with a big heart and a passion for eating car-bytes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. She believes that this was instigated by the automobile’s ability to influence and inspire man’s thinking. Today, the vehicle is perceived almost as an extension of man’s body. Having studied interior architecture and industrial design, before pursuing vehicle design, she integrates novel ideas from parallel fields of design. Take a look into the future – one that might be populated by robots, ships and vehicles that are the output of Tabitha’s work.
