Principia Design: Jozi Gin Restaurant & Bar

Embracing the nostalgia of Jozi as an industrial city built on gold, the new Jozi Gin Restaurant and Bar serves Jozi street food and comfort food with an upmarket twist.

Principia Design was approached to design a striking and colourful, art-deco inspired space for the newest Jozi Gin.  The main feature bar needed to replicate the opulence of the art-deco era but still remain true to the eclectic industrial look and feel of the brand.


Drawing inspiration from bars and venues of the time, the team added some light industrial touches with rusted steel, a striking “fan/clock” feature at the centre of the main bar with gorgeous accent lighting to further enhance the attention to detail.

The Result

Art-deco come warehouse elegance was brought to life here. This was achieved with vibrant colours working together with a mix of classic and modern furniture, finishes and fabrics.
