A new trend is sweeping through the Munich gastronomy scene: people want to eat at sustainably-sourced restaurants. All at the same time, the Munich work force doesn’t have the time to enjoy a five-course meal, which has brought about a second trend: fast-casual eating. Put the two new trends together and what do you picture? Nudo pastabar’s fast-casual sustainable eateries.
SMAL designed Nudo’s interior with the Nudo’s philosophy in mind: transparency and sustainability. These values were interpreted for the interior design. The environment feels open and welcomes customers to come and slow down during their busy lives. A meaningful interior accompanies the wholesome, healthy foods from local producers.

Only authentic and honest materials like wood, metal, and glass were used in combination with “upcycled” items to form the brand-reflecting interior. The term “upcycled” refers to old, used objects or materials which are repurposed in a completely new context. These upcycled materials create sustainable value and only strengthen Nudo’s brand identity. The counter’s openness is another architectural element meant to dissolve the barrier between wait and guest, thus overriding a social convention, while simultaneously creating an intimate feeling of trust and connection.
SMAL took the Nudo vision and streamlined it from start to finish. This meant an intimate working relationship with the start-up. SMAL hit the bull’s eye with Nudo’s core idea. The team was able to work around the spatial restrictions, and harmonize the items to their upcycling…all at the same time.
