Chocolate Paint by Nendo

Wednesday, 27 November 2013

Design studio Nendo has created a set of chocolate paints for Seibu department store in Japan. Styled to look like a box of oil paints, the chocolate shells each contain a different flavoured syrup, shown by the colour on the label.

Nendo describes the project as "a design that combines the childhood excitement of opening a new box of paints and the thrill of opening a box of chocolates you've been given unexpectedly."
