Department store IFS celebrated its first anniversary in Chengdu, China in a tasty way with a gigantic candy carpet mosaic display! The art piece, titled “Sweet as One”, was created by design duo company Craig & Karl. The carpet features a number of colorful designs and decorations, including vibrant flowers, swirls, and even cute panda caricatures.

The most astounding part of the piece is its size, reaching a total of 14,000 square feet over its 607 foot length! Over 2,000 volunteers helped make the carpet a reality over the span of five days, using a total of 19 tons of rainbow-colored treats. IFS commissioned the piece as a means to raise awareness for underprivileged children in rural China, and plans to donate the candy along with lunches to children across the nation.
