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.
