Nando's Flinders Street

An organic woven screen made from bamboo strips that connects the ground and first floor of a restaurant.

Giant Grass was responsible for the design and construction of the woven bamboo screen for a Nando's interior fit out on Flinders Street, Melbourne. We were approached by Russell & George, interior designers to refine and implement a woven screen that would become the centrepiece for the shop.

The design includes randomly woven bamboo strips, which interlock with vertical steel supports. The bamboo strips were split, cleaned and finished by hands before being carefully woven into a  random pattern. The semi-circular screen marks the 2-storey entrance and connects the ground and the first floor of the restaurant.
