We were tasked with designing the annual Taste of Summer benefit for the Central Park Conservancy, their annual fundraiser showcasing the best New York restaurants.

We integrated the patterns and colors of the iconic 1860’s Minton Tile Ceiling at Central Park’s Bethesda Terrace into the design of the bar fronts to celebrate the park’s history.

To tie all the elements of the benefit together, we created an overarching event design concept: installations of parasols were used throughout as the signature icon over the dance floor and above the bars.
