Possibly the most beautiful chocolate box ever designed, Chocolatexture by Nendo for Maison & Objet is a limited time offer. The renowned Japanese design firm is making just 400 boxes of chocolates that will be available from January 23rd to 27th in Paris.

The new chocolate concept focuses on the shape, rather than cocoa origin, percentage or chocolatier technique. The chocolate box contains nine different types of chocolate that are all exactly 26 cubed milometers. Each one is named after a Japanese expression that describes the texture, such as 'tubu-tubu' and 'poki-poki.' While the ingredients are the same for each, the texture changes the taste.

The exclusivity in addition to experimental quality here is worth noting, as chocolatiers try to think outside the box to create a unique experience for consumers.
