cocoa abstractions in mind

PingMag – The Tokyo-based magazine about “Design and Making Things” » Archive » Cocoa Abstractions In Mind

From the excellent Pingmag

First, what do we get to see made of chocolate? Thirty
designers, artists and photographers plunge into our
peculiar relationship with this sticky stimulant, using an array of
differing media.

Yoji Ishii`s piece “germination” sprouts a little green stalk from an earthy chocolate bean. From the Chocolate exhibition.

Then,
when we take a look at Yoji Ishii’s”germination” where the chocolate
nut sprouts a green shoot… We thinkthis could symbolise the new 21_21
gallery space – being a fresh starting point and a way to involve
everybody into design by means of chocolate. How did you come up with the concept, together with Issey Miyake and Taku Satoh?”

I
just want to eat the whole lot (maybe not the chocolate
heart…go look..not how you would first imagine) but it does explore
our use and abuse of this most popular sweet stuff.
