THE STAR-STRUCK HOLIDAY ORNAMENT
With a trompe l’oeil play on piercings and light, Nicolas Cloiseau enlightens his chocolate like never before.
Along his garlands of perforations and geometric trails, light, imaginatively transparent, underscores the elegance of his chocolate craftsmanship. Between shadow and light, a fascinating optical illusion creates a multitude of reflections throughout the chocolate ornament. This hypnotic graphic design reaffirms the elegance of unbounded signature creativity.
Once again, Nicolas Cloiseau challenges chocolate to defy its limitations. The craftsmanship of perforations and interior light, showcased in this Holiday ornament, gives new meaning to innovation and dreaming. Here, no questions are needed, just a new way to be struck by beauty.
The Star-Struck Holiday ornaments display a wealth of details, highlighting the finesse of the art of a chocolatier genuinely dedicated to gourmandise.
