Watch as a Blade Gradually Reveals Geometric Patterns Hiding in this Chocolate Cylinder

Studio Wieki Somers and chocolatier Rafael Mutter have engineered a gigantic cylindrical block of chocolate that contains beautiful geometric layers with unique patterns.

Called ‘The Chocolate Mill,’ this artistic endeavor was undertaken as a retrospective of Gerrit Rietveld, a Dutch designer and architect. The Chocolate Mill is made up of ten layers and a crank-turned blade resembling a large cheese slicer reveals each underlying layer which contains a beautiful, unique pattern of chocolate shapes.

Watch the video above to see how each layer is unveiled.

Call it beautiful craftsmanship or a waste of chocolate but the question we have is.. who gets to eat all those chocolate shavings they sweep away?!

This Adorable 100% Chocolate Easter Atelier Will run you $1200

2014_03_bunnyatelier

In case you were still looking for that perfect Easter centerpiece that’s not only crazy adorable but also completely edible, this Easter Atelier might be what you had in mind. Of course, what I mean by that is if you were hoping to spend $1200 on chocolate.

Handcrafted and painted by Nicolas Cloiseau, Master Chef of La Maison du Chocolat, along with his chocolatiers, this baker bunny studio scene is made up entirely of chocolate. From the floor tiles to the tiny desserts and even the baking tools literally everything in the scene is made up of white, milk, or dark chocolate.

The entire piece weighs 11 pounds and measures in at L 17.3 in x W 12.2 in x H 10.6 in, the perfect size to compliment your Easter dinner table. Unfortunately, supplies are extremely limited, as in there’s literally only one Easter Aterlier in the U.S.
