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.”
