Almost too pretty to eat.
When talented designers put their minds into creating original gifts, one expects intriguing results. Australian design studio Universal Favourite exemplifies this point perfectly, but takes creativity to a whole new level of sweet awesomeness. Meet Complements, a series of architectural-inspired chocolates that look almost too beautiful to devour. The studio created the collection as a gift for clients, but it seems that the idea took on a life of its own. In a partnership with Sydney-based Bakedown Cakery, Universal Favourite made the artisan line of creative chocolate using 3D printing techniques. The modular shapes fit together in one seamless piece, allowing the user to combine two flavors in one mouthwatering, bite-sized cube.
Inspired by Shigenobu Kobayashi, Complements feature an eye-catching blend of colors as well as striking finishes. From simply green to intricate marble and painterly or airbrushed patterns, the chocolates look like tiny works of art. The 12 flavors also impress. They include shortbread, single origin dark, fairy floss, blackcurrant, cookies & cream, cherry, watermelon, strawberry, pistachio, matcha, vanilla, and lemon.
The premium ingredients range from Australian grown nuts to fruits from New Zealand. Fantastic on their own, this creative chocolate truly come to life in pairs. The studio added some great suggestions on the beautifully designed boxes, but experimentation also has its charm. Handmade in a limited edition of just 500 boxes, Complements chocolates are currently available online. And we have some great news: free worldwide shipping is also available.
