Haldane Martin Iconic Design has designed a brewery and restaurant interior for Mad Giant beer that plays with scale referencing oversized metal toy construction kits. The result is a creative and welcoming industrial space that brings to life the DIY ethos of the renegade South African craft beer, while contributing to the urban regeneration of inner-city Johannesburg. http://bit.ly/HMMGpin

Upscale Meccano is a theme throughout, seen in the beer tap and the beer-hall-style lights. This alludes to the playful, DIY nature of the Mad Giant brand, and “the small guy brave enough to dream big and do something crazy,” says founder Eben Uys. Giant cast concrete bars take the shape of bottle caps.

Mad Giant brewery in Johannesburg – and inside Urbanologi, winner of Best Restaurant Design in Africa and the Middle East at the 2017 Restaurant and Bar Design Awards – was designed by Haldane Martin iconic furniture & interior design.

Banquet seating in green distressed leather is unique to the Mad Giant brewery. Inspired by traditional diner seats, the ribbed back references the iconic Haldane Martin Songololo Sofa. The standout feature are their draped unfinished back and sides of hanging leather.  The bathroom has massive red I-beams converted into basins. Hexagonal patterned tiles continue the DIY theme of building blocks and the periodic table.  Interior and Furniture design by Haldane Martin. Photo by Micky Hoyle.

The dining chairs have rebar arms and legs, metal back and legs sprayed bright red with a Mad Giant emblem laser-cut into the back, with seats and seatbacks upholstered in distressed leather with red stitching.  Giant murals (by graffiti artist Nomad) with a playful, childlike aesthetic enhance the effect of a child’s big dreams brought to life.
