THE NEW CHOCOLATE EXPERIENCE
Chocolate is consumed so much, especially in Asia, that we're running the risk of chocolate going extinct in 40 or 50 years. The cocoa bean farmers in South America are getting less and less money for their work every day and climate change also presents a very credible threat. Because of that, I want to celebrate chocolate in all it's diversity and glory and present it, as it used to be: a luxury item. You can compare this set-up to a wine tasting, where every part of the experience is designed to enrich the tastebuds and heighten the senses. Because of that I've designed five different ways to experience chocolate, based on our five senses..
To understand the power of design a video is necessary. Showing the five steps in the experience gives a clear vision of what the possibilities are and hopefully makes you more interested in the process.
THE SENSES EXPLANATION
Xocolatl is a chocolate experience that is focused on what the power of design can do for a product like chocolate. Material, colors, ambiance and even sound can change the taste of food. It can change your mood and give you a completely different perspective.
SCHEME OF TOOLS
Creating tools with an experience is very powerful, because it allows you to be interactive with the food. This will bring more depth, more enjoyment and influences the brain in a positive matter so you can get to know the food better and experiment with it.
