Spacebar Design launched just the week before the COVID-19 lockdown, but the hospitality design firm was determined not to let it be a setback in its drive to help New Zealand hospitality businesses share their unique stories.
Designer Anson Kong says Spacebar Design aims to fill a gap in the market by focusing on giving bars, restaurants, cafes and foodtrucks the opportunity to uncover the story of their businesses and the food and beverages behind them in a creative way.
Anson’s appreciation of the journey of food – from farm to plate – is something he applies to his design work. Spacebar Design aims to encapsulate the farm to plate stories and other personal stories behind the eateries in its creative process, bringing those stories to life in venues around New Zealand.
Spacebar Design is passionate about connecting the stories of people and food through interiors. "Being a designer is about the ability to solve problems but not just at a technical and physical level, to me it’s at the emotional and human level as well.”
