This is not the sort of artwork you want to be looking at for too long when you are on a self imposed low GI diet… but this is so beautiful I could not resist.  

Thin layers of chocolate are slowly removed from a cylindrical block of chocolate to reveal layer upon layer of geometrical patterns.  The Chocolate Mill by Wieki Somers at the Vitra Design Museum, and helped by Swiss chocolatier Rafael Mutter, was adapted from a cheese cutter.

The laborious process reveals many beautiful layers and the length of this process maybe also reflects the length of time it takes to mill really good chocolate… time is not an issue here.

Little chocolate mills are on sale in the Vitra Shop, including special chocolate for refilling.  


Enjoy xx
