Edible Surfaces

17th October 2012

With the run up to Dutch Design week all eyes are resting on Eindhoven and Amsterdam where the design innovators will be showcasing new and intriguing designs.

One project that will be showcased in Amsterdam is Edible surfaces a collaboration between Pinaki Studios, a London-based creative textile studio, and Chocolátl, a retail shop and tasting space in Amsterdam that specialises in eclectic premium chocolate.

Similarly to some projects seen during London Design Festival with collaborations between choclatiers and designers such as Faye Too Good, this collaboration draws on artisan techniques and the processes of chocolate. It celebrates in the parallel techniques between the art of textile design and chocolate making.

The resulting chocolate objects will be shown alongside the textile pieces that they were inspired by.

Edible Surfaces can be seen from the 20th October at Chocolátl- Chocolátl- Hazenstraat 25-A, 1016 Amsterdam-Netherlands
