On Saturday 14 March 2015, we celebrated collaboration and great South African design at our second VISI Great Spaces tour at the Nando’s Central Kitchen in Joburg, in association with Saint-Gobain.
Upon arrival, guests were treated to Graham Beck Brut, orange juice and a selection of delicious Nando’s snacks, before the tour kicked off with VISI deputy editor Annemarie Meintjes, Kirsty Niehaus from Nando’s and renowned interior designer Tracy Lee Lynch.
Walking around the Nando’s space, guests were given access to all parts of this proudly South African brand, including boardrooms, lounge areas, as well as the kitchen itself, with the tour ending at the rooftop bar.
The conversation during the tour covered everything from the brand’s design philosophy to the sourcing process Tracy used when designing the space. There is a wide range of South African design seen throughout the Central Kitchen, which is in line with the brand’s stance on corporate support of the local art industry.
Guests headed home with the latest issue of VISI and a bottle of Graham Beck MCC.
