Special Advent Calendar ‘Cool Christmas’

Danish design studio Bessermachen wants you to have a “Cool Christmas” and in the spirit of the holidays have come out with this special advent calendar which is giving us serious winter vibes. “Thank God, It’s Christmas! Bessermachen has created a Christmas calendar for Danish toffee company, Karamelleriet. The calendar is not only ridiculously delicious on the inside, because this year it has gotten a great big sprinkle of funky disco silver glitter on the outside. And we’re talking a lot of glitter! Because when Karamelleriet laid out their Christmas wishes for us, the wanted a icy calendar, which is hot as hell. They sought a design that was modern, sharp and, of course, delicious. You can enjoy the result right here. We’ve made a design wrapped in silver inside and out, which sends you right outside in the glittering snow on a frosty funky day. And once you open the calendar doors and the many delicious tastes from Karamelleriet reveal themselves, everyday is like a Christmas party in your mouth.”

Each chocolate is directly named after Japanese expressions used to describe texture.

Chocolate Pencils by Nendo

These chocolate pencils were designed by Japanese studio Nendo. Created for Tsujiguchi Hironobu in Tokyo, the pencils are made to be “sharpened” for the delicate, delicious chocolate shavings. Customers at the patisserie shave the chocolate themselves with the accompanying pencil sharpener, decorating their dessert as part of a creative if somewhat laborious experience. The pencils themselves are available in a variety of cocoa blends, so there’s a flavor to inspire each and every chocolate lover to play with their food.

Chocolate with Attitude

Bessermachen design studio created stunning collection containing 12 chocolates for 12 months. “Bessermachen design studio had a dream about how archetypes could be shown as young women, calendar girls in a classic 50s style, to create the perfect packaging for archetypes and chocolates. But we knew that for it to be authentic, it would have to be done right. Packaging for the chocolates is a chapter for itself. Everything from weight to quality and coating needs to be taken into consideration. Suggestions range from using fabrics to cardboard. But in the spirit of the 50s we end up choosing tin boxes. The production, however, is modern and made in China.” Take a look!
