Geometric Chocolate Collection Employs Texture to Affect Taste
The collection by design house Nendo was introduced at the Maison & Object in Paris with complementary chocolate furniture set
Chocolate as a work of art or as an element of aesthetics is nothing new in the world of design. And Japanese design studio Nendo is no stranger to having chocolate in their body of work.
Back in 2013, the studio designed chocolates packaged like a set of oil paints for Seibu the Japanese department store. This year, the design house has created a unique chocolate collection that alters texture and structure to affect taste.
Chocolatexture is a collection of nine different types of chocolate made in the same size but in various shapes and textures. The pieces feature pointed tips, smooth and rough exteriors, hollow interiors, and more. The different textures allow for differing tastes even though all the chocolate pieces in the collection are made of the same raw ingredients.
