Nando’s Maponya - Hospitality

Our primary intent in designing the Nando’s Maponya concept store was to bring design to the people of Soweto. At the heart of the Nando’s brand is a spirit of generosity which extends to exposing their clientele to new experiences particularly in art and design together with a high standard of quality.

This spirit of generosity is reflected in every element within the design solution; for us bringing design to the people means not only having carefully curated artefacts that the customer would otherwise not be exposed to, but also designing a space in a human centric way. Our strategy in choosing a bold colour palette was to reflect the vibrancy of the township and thereby attract and inspire its people.
