Stripes, Dots, and Zigzags Emboss Nendo Founder Oki Sato’s ChocolaTextureBars

Eating should engage all the senses, Nendo founder Oki Sato believes. Which is why, when he was named designer-of-the-year at Maison & Objet in Paris, he thanked fairgoers with boxes of chocolates shaped to produce different sensory effects. He now follows up on that idea with ChocolaTextureBars, Hunter Confectionery Co. limited-editions embossed with groovy stripes, dots, zigzags, diamonds, and checker-boards, all cast from 3-D printed molds. Traditionalists can opt for bittersweet, milk, or white. For the more daring, there’s straw-berry and matcha, pretty in pink and green.
