There’s always room for dessert, especially when it looks this sweet. Designed by Glasfurd and Walker with art deco inspiration, Mosquito Dessert looks like a 1920s speakeasy but with sugary treats.
“Mosquito have a simple offering: a champagne bar without the caviar and a dessert bar without with frosting. Located in Gastown, Vancouver the small room contradicts the expectation of a traditional dessert bar – edgy with a fine balance of masculine and feminine details.”
Instead of bright, playful hues to attract people, a deep, navy blue and shining bronze make Mosquito feel like an exquisite, upscale nightclub. A simple, thin font expresses elegance without requiring many words. The restaurant certainly defies expectation by communicating the unique experience it offers.
“The brand created by Glasfurd & Walker draws on the interior design details and adds a layer of sophistication and luxury through custom designed typography, deep colour pallets and accents of metallic finishing on printed collateral such as menu’s, wallpaper and stationery. The name is an intentional counterpoint to the beauty and nuance of the space – again playing on idea contradiction and expectation.”
