It should have taken three years before it was ready: the perfect chocolate chip. Developed by confectioner Lisa Vega and industrial designer Remy Labesque. This is how Dandelion Chocolate describes it in a blog post. The fact that Labesque has a penchant for futuristic designs reveals not only the shape of the chocolate, but also his new employer: the industrial designer who worked at Frog Design during the development of the chocolate chip, a design agency that worked with Apple, among others and Sony works, is now employed by Tesla.
According to Dandelion, the shape that commercial chocolate chips have is an arbitrary result of production – a dollop of liquid chocolate falls onto a smooth surface and cools. The chocolate chips differ in taste, but rarely in shape. Dandelion wanted to change that.
With its unusual shape, it was not only important for him to break with industrial standards, but also to combine his design ideas with the substance properties of chocolate.
The result is this special chip weighing 3.5 grams. Its edges are tapered so that they melt quickly in your mouth. The other properties of the shape should simply make it as individual as possible. In the future, the chip will also be available in a smaller version of 0.8 grams. In addition, different flavors are offered – depending on the origin of the cocoa bean.
