Recently awarded “Designer of the Year" of Maison & Objet 2015, Japanese design firm, Nendo, always surprise us with new items and out of the box ideas... this time, literally out of a beautiful box are the most beautiful pieces of geometrical shaped chocolates exclusively for the occasion.
But nendo turned their attention the "shape" of chocolate’s. The 9 different types of chocolate are made within the same size, 26x26x26mm,
featuring pointed tips, hollow interiors, smooth or rough surface textures–and, while the raw materials are identical, the distinctive textures create different tastes.
Each chocolate is directly named after Japanese expressions used to describe texture.
1. “tubu-tubu” Chunks of smaller chocolate drops.
2. “sube-sube” Smooth edges and corners.
3. “zara-zara” Granular like a file.
4. “toge-toge” Sharp pointed tips.
5. “goro-goro” Fourteen connected small cubes.
6. “fuwa-fuwa” Soft and airy with many tiny holes.
7. “poki-poki” A cube frame made of chocolate sticks.
8. “suka-suka” A hollow cube with thin walls.
9. “zaku-zaku” Alternately placed thin chocolate rods forming a cube.
400 boxes of these gorgeous chocolates would be available at the M&O lounge from 23-27 January 2015.
