Chocolate Mill


Dutch design duo Studio Wieki Somers has collaborated with German chocolatier Rafael Mutter to create a new a way to enjoy chocolate, inspired by a traditional cheese-shaving wheel.

The Chocolate Mill is a large cylindrical block of chocolate that’s been imprinted with a series of patterns. Thin shavings of chocolate are then carved off using a rotating crank blade, which creates delicate chocolate rosettes. As each layer is removed it reveals a new part of the design – similar to a flipbook.

The designers said: “Chocolate stimulates the senses and our brain at the same time. We wanted to inject a new excitement and enjoyment into chocolate.”
