We’ve profiled the Sydney female design trio TomMarkHenry before and, as predicted, the relatively new company is making quite the mark on the interior design scene. Held recently in Sydney, in conjuction with the Design Institute of Australia and Artichoke magazine, the firm took out the the Australian Interior Design Award for the retail sector – rather fitting given their current client roster.
Friends since childhood – TomMarkHenry
“It is a really exciting time for TomMarkHenry, we are being approached by larger companies looking for bespoke design solutions. We are being recognised as designers who can create something unique, using materials that are interesting and concepts that are original,” says director Chloe Matters. With a particular focus on the hospitality and commercial sector, the firm’s recent projects include the rebranding of Nando’s, 1888 Certified, Vibe Hotels, Café Indigo, Los Vida Bondi, the Well Gym in Bondi and Los Vida Melbourne.
The new-look Nando’s – we love!
We’re particularly taken with the trio’s rebrand of Nando’s. “We are thrilled to be working with an established global business like Nando’s. They approached us to help them develop their brand and move away from the franchise feel of the current restaurants. We have worked with them to successfully change the direction of their customer experience and design spaces that are unique to each individual environment depending on the location,” says fellow director Jade Nottage.
With 1,000 restaurants in 30 countries (including 270 in Australia), this is an amazing opportunity for the firm to take their bespoke approach to the global scene. “We are only two years old in this business and have gained a lot of traction and national award nominations, which has gained us access to a variety of clients that we can help to develop a more bespoke concept,” says Jade.
