This year, Johannesburg’s finest avant-garde eatery, Urbanologi, won the title of best restaurant design in the Middle East and Africa category for 2017, an award which is recognised on a global scale.
Urbanologi received the winning prize at the prestigious awards ceremony held at London’s King’s Cross early this October. The tapas-style eatery was awarded for their edgy, industrial chic design which was conceptualised and completed by Haldane Martin – a pre-eminent South African designer, renowned for iconic furniture and high-concept interiors.
