Valerie Confections

Developed in collaboration with Commune Design and handmade by Valerie Confections. The packaging, a simple cardboard box, grew from the idea of the chocolates as actual tiles. Fortuitously, the box selected holds 49 pieces of the chocolate, the result of squaring a prime number, 7. It seemed fitting, as the collaboration is the result of…

Chocolate Concepts

One of my favorite design firms. The 5.5 designers always make surprising pieces. A project with Barcelona’s Chocolate Factory generated these ideas. The Gâteau, a chocolate “cake” for every taste: each section of the cake-shaped chocolate is a different flavour. Only three molds are used for the production, but flavours can be mixed and matched in…
