South Africa is a colourful country known for its ethnic and cultural diversity, a place where design solutions and creative expression flourishes in Art, Culture and Design.
South African design has become so trendy within the world of Interior Design and Architecture that it has played a key role in re-defining global perceptions of African design. It has become a modern interior design sensation through the exploration of geometric shapes, vivid colours, organic materials and textures, all elements that combine to create a visual melting pot of contemporary expression.
Interior Designers, Architects and Creatives alike have embraced the South African aesthetic with its rich and diverse personality and style, with brands like Nando’s leading the way globally through their restaurants. Collaborating with over 50 South African designers they have embraced and utilised the skills of local talent to create colourful, vibrant and unique authentic spaces, showcasing contemporary South African design solutions at its best in every Nando’s restaurant around the world.
With creative direction from South African creative, Tracy-Lee Lynch, functional design pieces such as furniture and lighting were designed specifically for Nando’s restaurants to create an authentic African experience. Local designers such as David Krynauw and Pedersen + Lennard to name a few have been a part of Nando’s inspiring journey to create vibrant bold spaces that combine urban and traditional energies to produce the ultimate authentic African dining experience.
Collaborating with the accomplished interior design agency Reddeco Interiors, Tilt is happy to say that we too have been a part of this eclectic mix of local designers and have produced bespoke dividing screens for Nando’s restaurants throughout Africa.
The most recent projects being, Nando’s Gaborone and Nando’s Palapye, Botswana. Showcasing our Circa and Brooklyn patterns, our screens add to the decorative and spatial design of the restaurants, creating functional partitioning and adding to the mix of colour and pattern.
The African aesthetic is making waves around the world and local South African design has never before been so significant to the realm of contemporary design.
We must admit we couldn’t be more proud to be a part of it all.
