Designer chocolates that blend 3D-printing techniques with architecture and nature-inspired forms.

When creative people have diverse backgrounds and experience in complementing creative fields, they often make products that defy the norm; the kind of designs that are anything but ordinary. Chocolates by Ryan L Foote is a perfect example. The brainchild of designer, artist, and chef Ryan L Foote, this collection re-imagines classic chocolate for the digital age. In a similar way to Chocolatexture from Nendo, the series blends 3D-printing techniques with bold design. To create the striking collection, the designer has drawn inspiration from both architectural forms and nature. More specifically, the chocolates reference man-made elements as well as natural minerals and geological formations. Ryan L Foote also pays homage to the two cities in which he lives: Melbourne and Hong Kong.

Developed after years of research, Chocolates by Ryan L Foote line features digitally-formed chocolates that complement their bold shapes with a range of surprising flavors. The Australia collection includes native plants as well as creative flavor combinations. Flavors include lemon myrtle with macadamia nut, spicy mountain pepperberry, or avocado. Alternatively, chocolate lovers can sample the flavors of Hong Kong with the dedicated collection that features pineapple bun, three-year preserved mandarin rind, or red bean ganache. A third collection delights chocolate purists with single origin chocolate from places like Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Indonesia, Philippines, and Vietnam.

Finally, the packaging fits the collection perfectly. Minimal and understated, the simple black boxes allow the chocolates to take the center stage and shine. Apart from the 3D-printed chocolates, the line also includes drinking chocolate, ceramic mugs, and plates. Of course, these are not ordinary mugs. Inspired by nature, the 3D-printed ceramic mugs make drinking hot chocolate a special and indulging experience. Plates with a custom crystalline glaze that references the chocolate tempering process complete the line. Photographs© Ryan L Foote.
