Lincoln Center and its official coffee sponsor Nespresso are proud to introduce the Prelude Café & Bar Curated by Nespresso, the campus’s newest dining attraction, inside Alice Tully Hall’s iconic glass lobby.
The café space was entirely reimagined by photographer and designer Sylvère Azoulai. Azoulai, who has worked with Nespresso worldwide for over 20 years, artfully redesigned the space with a modern aesthetic and a nod to Nespresso’s iconic capsule shape and multihued colors. The café is furnished with custom design elements as well as a proprietary lattice-work motif that connotes music and movement. An eye-catching piece of lenticular artwork is the centerpiece of the space, which Nespresso commissioned Azoulai to create. Entitled “Intervalles et Mesures,” the piece pays tribute to both the art of performance and the art of Nespresso.
