The Lumière Au Chocolate by Alexander Lervik Looks Like a Piece of Tobl

The Lumière au Chocolate may get people salivating even before they learn that it is made out of real chocolate and not just designed to look as though it were. Intriguingly, it probably looks more like an oversized piece of Toblerone than a light fixture. When first turned on, it doesn't emit any light. But as the designer, Alexander Lervik, states, the Lumière au Chocolate mimics "light spreading along the horizon at sunrise. The heat from the lamp causes the chocolate to begin melting, and it takes several minutes for the first rays of light to penetrate."

Part of Lervik 100 collection and currently being presented at Galleri Kleerup in Stockholm, Sweden, the Lumière au Chocolate was manufactured by Scandinavian LED specialists SAAS Instruments. Stats for Sweetly Melting Lamps Trending: Older & Mild
