Recently named “M&O’s Designer of the Year,” Japanese firm Nendo has created nine pieces of chocolate art to furnish a lounge it designed for the furniture and design show Maison&Objet. The creations look more like miniature sculptures than confectioneries, with each one measuring the same dimensions at 26 x 26 x 26mm. Each one takes on a different shape with distinctive textures, such as hollow centered cubes, pointed tips, smooth and rough surfaces, each corresponding to a Japanese expression — for example, “zara-zara” has a rough, file-like surface whereas “poki-poki” is an Escher-esque box frame. The composition of ingredients for all nine designs, meanwhile, remain identical. The chocolates are being produced in a limited quantity of 400 hundred sets and will be available to guests at the Nendo lounge at Maison&Objet from January 23 to 27.
