A CHOCOLATE TEXTURE EXPERIMENT PROJECT
Candy design is about yummy, sweetness, texture and fun. This project I am focus on using architecture structural concept, in which I make several layers of shape, to generate various forms, which enable customers to enjoy the fun of assembling and creating their patterns on their own. Moreover, the customers can taste the texture of the chocolate forms they make by themselves.
The customers get a package with three main components in the box, which are modules, chocolate bases and chocolate sheets. The customers can follow the instructions on the back side of the cover and start their experiences of CHOCHITEXTURE.
FIRST: PLAY AROUND WITH THE MODULES & CHOOSE THE PATTERN YOU CREATE
The modules are made in six themes with three shapes of graduation for each theme to create gradient forms. The sheets of these shapes are designed to be detached and assemble on the customers own to let them play around and decide with of the forms they create and prefer to build with chocolate sheets in the next step.
SECOND: MAkE ONE WITH CHOCOLATE
After playing the modules, the customers can take the chocolate sheets with corresponding shapes with the modules and build their own chocolate.
THIRD: TASTE THE TEXTURE
After assembling and building their own chocolate, the customers can taste their distinctive texture of chocolate.
I tried to demold vertically and the chocolate cracked in the mold. As a result, I cut every mold into two so that I could demold horizontally. Some of the mold wasn’t trimmed well; therefore, to improve the success rate, I redid the molds. Some of the results came well because of the simple shape itself and the well-separated mold; however, most of the results failed and cracked because the mold forced them to break when demolding.
SECOND TRY: DOUBLE THE SIZE
After doubling the size and thickness of the chocolate and molds, the overall results worked well; however, some of the chocolate still failed.
