It’s June and my local supermarket in London has got the Xmas chocolates out – that must be a record…
A chocolatey concept by Japanese design company Nendo featuring sculpted cubes – each one named after Japanese expressions describing texture. To wit:
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.
The nine textures are (from right to left above) : ”tubu-tubu” chunks of smaller chocolate drops; ”sube-sube” smooth edges and corners; “toge-toge” sharp pointed tips; “zara-zara” granular like a file; “goro-goro” fourteen connected small cubes; “fuwa-fuwa” soft and airy with many tiny holes; “suka-suka” a hollow cube with thin walls; “zaku-zaku” alternately placed thin chocolate rods forming a cube and “poki-poki” a cube frame made of chocolate sticks
