Chocolatexture, Chocolates That Represent Onomatopoeic Japanese Words Used To Describe Texture

chocolatexture11_akihiro_yoshida

When we think of chocolate, the words “yum” and “gimme more” often come to mind. However, when an artist such as Oki Sato designs a set of chocolates, they tend to say a bit more… but still “yum.”

When Sato was asked to design chocolates by Maison et Objet, the pre-eminent design show in France, he came up with Chocolatexture. The series represents Japanese words that are used to describe the way objects look and feel. It’s OK… I had to Google “onomatopoeic” too.

Four-hundred sets of Chocolatexture were created, and will be sold during the event in Paris starting Jan. 23.
