Chocolatexture, Onomatopoeic Chocolates by Nendo

Oki Sato, the head of the Tokyo and Milan-based design studio Nendo, has created “Chocolatexture” a series of 9 chocolates, all the same size, but each representing a Japanese onomatopoeic word that describes texture.

“The 9 different types of chocolate are made within the same size, 26x26x26mm, featuring pointed tips, hollow interiors, smooth or rough surface textures,” says Sato. “And while the raw materials are identical, the distinctive textures create different tastes.”


ツブツブ (tsubu tsubu): a word for small bits or drops

スベスベ (sube sube): smooth edges and corners

トゲトゲ (toge toge): sharp pointed tips

ザラザラ (zara zara): granular like a file

ゴロゴロ (goro goro): cubic, with many edges

フワフワ (fuwa fuwa): soft and airy with many tiny holes

ポキポキ (poki poki): a delicate frame or structure

ザクザク (zaku zaku): makes a crunching sounds, like when you step on ice
