Ascend is a vibrant design solution for a pop-up cafe in collaboration with Sydney Festival and Carriageworks Sydney. Ascend to joy in this pop-up cafe – an inspiring collective of colour, art and amazing architectural cakes.
Inspired by artist Jean Michel Basquiat, customers are invited to indulge in this interactive, innovative concept cafe to engage in cultural commentary as part of the Sydney Festival.
The design is transparent, colourful and vibrantly contemporary – a high contrast to the industrial host of the Carriageworks. Made of perspex acrylic, guests are invited to graffiti the walls of Ascend with messages of joy. Overtime the concept cafe will evolve – a making of everyone who makes up Ascend.
Do you ever feel overwhelmed by everything going on in the news?
Or trying to keep up with the insta life?

Well it is time to ascend to a new place… ascend to a moment of joy.
