Chocolatexture by Nendo
Commissioned by Maison et Objet, Nendo designed a collection of chocolates, Chocolatexture, which comes in assorted geometrical shapes, with each representing a Japanese onomatopoeic word that describes a particular texture. Nendo abandoned use of traditional factors, such as flavors or percentage content, to differentiate the tastes. The tastes, instead, are created by distinctive textures.
“tubu-tubu” Chunks of smaller chocolate drops
“zara-zara” Granular like a file
“toge-toge” Sharp pointed tips
“zaku-zaku” Alternately placed thin chocolate rods forming a cube
