The Nando’s Hot Young Designer competition is here

Entries are open for the fourth edition of the Nando’s Hot Young Designer (HYD) talent search!

We challenge you to re-imagine a piece that plays a key role in Nando’s restaurants worldwide, the condiment unit, a.k.a. the Server. Be it at a restaurant or in the home, the server provides the perfect meeting point for considered form and function. While it must perform its primary function, it is also a design piece, a canvas upon which to showcase your unique approach and creativity.

The server will display Nando’s acclaimed Peri-Peri sauces. The challenge is to create a server that does so in such a way that these sauces and their piquant ingredients, which form an intrinsic part of the Nando’s experience, remain visible and accessible to customers throughout their visit.

Up-and-coming designers are challenged to bring their own “sauce” by entering vibrant, yet functional, conversation pieces, whose inspiration is rooted right here at home, on the African continent.
