Here are a few words from Uxus Design:


Nike EMEA Headquarters commissioned UXUS to be part of the team to re-design their corporate canteen.

The objective was to create a personalized, social hub inspired by sports that encouraged and enabled the exchange of ideas.

Nike Canteen by UXUS Design

Working alongside the Nike design team, UXUS created a space utilizing mismatched elements to accommodate the various moods and needs of the employees.

Semi-enclosed areas and cozy spaces offer solitude,while vast tables and counters stimulate interaction.

Every element was designed for efficiency and the ability of employees to create a personalized eating experience.

Material choices were inspired by sports facilities with contrasting bright and neutral colors.

Various ceiling elements such as low hanging lamps create rhythm to diffuse and humanize the tall volume of the main eating hall, while a striking, orange tube wall with super-graphic ties the 2 levels together.

    The canteen looks good but it seems a little clinical and bare. I guess that's because they don't want their employees to sit in there for too long

    Nike owns Converse…
    great canteen!

    I love this design. It looks really chic. Think this must be a great place for informal meetings too

  • Pony the Trap

    As in Converse – the brand it owns.

  • wingerintown

    Nice but very predictable. Probably a lot of money spent on a very average design.

    • HUBBUB

      I agree completely. Very very predicable. No surprises. It's a conclusion that would have been reached by anybody – Eames furniture, using Nike sole patterns as textures, and the ol faithful picnic benches

  • James

    No doubts that Blofield should be nice. They have both the AIR concept! Perhaps they can work in some way with each other should be really cool!

    I can't tell if it's a super cool canteen or just a bit naff. Sitting on the fence with this one.

  • jess

    A bit boring! I agree, very predictable both the furniture and the graphic prints. I feel all those prints are a cover up for not being able to make a good design. getting there the easy way!
