In celebration of the first anniversary of Chengdu IFS, artists Craig & Karl came together to create the Sweet as One installation in China. The art piece involved creating a carpet in the city in front of the flagship store with thousands of colorful candies. As well as being a colorful mosaic of candy, the artists arranged shapes like patterns and panda faces within the art piece.

After this amazing concept was dreamed up by Craig & Karl, in order to come to life, the installation took over 2,000 volunteers to assemble over the course of five days. After the public installation has been appreciated, the wrapped candies will be donated to underprivileged children alongside lunches provided through Chengdu IFS.
