Front counter of Nutella kiosk

In the world of chocolate lovers, eating chocolate by the spoon must be item number one on the guilty pleasure list. To help chocolate aficionados cross that off the list, in 2015, Nutella opened its first official kiosk, located on Paulista Avenue in Sao Paulo, Brazil. This fun kiosk design is meant to attract, incite curiosity and amuse while increasing brand fidelity.

Designed by Estúdio Jacarandá, the kiosk makes the iconic Nutella jar its natural (and obvious) point of inspiration. More or less subtle suggestions of the highly recognizable silhouette are everywhere. From the jar-shaped display shelves to the menu list, and from the chair design to the number machine, the Nutella jar is represented in ingenious 2-D and 3-D versions.

The high stools with seats molded in the shape of Nutella jar caps are a clever and charming touch. Even their legs follow the well-known silhouette of the jar.

Every detail is carefully designed in terms of branding, and everything reminds customers of the beloved Nutella chocolate. Yet, the jar-inspired design does not get overwhelming, nor boring. Set against the clean and crisp white background with light wood touches, the chocolate jar hints still find a way to look rather subtle. The merit is partially due to the fresh and limited chromatic palette, gravitating about the white and red Nutella brand colors, and to the minimalistic approach to each “jar” element.

The kiosk introduces a smart way of turning the trivial ingredient list into a 3-D display. Encased behind glass and placed on an illuminated display shelf, the simple Nutella ingredients make their natural source clear, which is a brilliant marketing strategy.

While the kiosk serves the simple function of offering chocolate on crepes and breads, it adds a few others to the mix. An oversized Nutella jar on one side of the kiosk offers a perfect prop for the chocolate enthusiasts who want to take pictures.

From the front side, customers can follow the process of crepe making, mouthwatering with its promises of impending culinary delights, and introducing a feeling of familiarity that is always a winning ingredient in design. This fun kiosk design is an excellent example of branding done with both conviction and taste.
