Nendo, one of the best Japanese design studios of late, have taken to chocolate yet again and created a few bonbons that truly go outside the norm.

After having their way with reinventing rubber-bands, cakes and chopsticks, they applied their inimitable style by coercing the chocolate into unusual geometric forms.

I feel like it would be a crime to eat even one.

According to Fast Co., “Nendo created the chocolates for Maison&Objet, after being declared M&O’s Designer of the Year.” All of the chocolates are the same size, roughly 26x26x26mm, and each is named in Japanese to describe the taste and texture of each.

I am completely shocked. Does that mean they ATE THEM?? Horrible. Well thank goodness you won’t have the chance to eat them either – apparently they have finished selling a limited run of 400 last month. If there is anyone who bought one, please preserve them for posterity. Too good to be ingested.
