Restaurant designer to speak at center
Las Vegas Design Center at World Market Center will welcome Jennifer Johanson, chief executive officer and design leader for EDG Interior Architecture + Design, for its monthly First Friday event.
Johanson’s presentation, “Restaurant Design Strategies for Impact and Performance,” will take place from 10-11:30 a.m. on the 16th floor of World Market Center’s Building B, 475 S. Grand Central Parkway. Her seminar is open to interior designers and other industry professionals.
She has been at the forefront of transforming restaurant and food-service concepts for nearly 20 years. Johanson’s California-based EDG provides restaurant and hospitality design services throughout the world; its clients include premier chefs Wolfgang Puck, Joachim Splichal, Eric Ripert, Kent Rathbun and Bradley Ogden. In addition to designing independent restaurants, Johanson and her team are guiding the design of new hotel restaurant venues for Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, Marriott, Hilton and Caesars Palace.
“Restaurants are social spaces that enliven the spirit and bring us together. But to achieve lasting success, great restaurant design needs to deliver a solid platform for financial performance,” said Johanson.
During her presentation, Johanson will share case studies that illuminate the role of the restaurant designer as a strategic collaborator. She will illustrate how to place design in the realm of strategy versus product, highlighting design innovations that generate excitement and enhance client revenue.
The day’s festivities also will include showroom specials and hospitality.
