MAROU CHOCOLATE FOR NATIONAL GALLERY SINGAPORE
The artisanal chocolatiers roll out gorgeous packaging for museum partnership
Since when did chocolate become too pretty to eat? The latest batch of Marou Chocolat has us deep in contemplation over this predicament of sorts. After a New York Times shout-out in February declared them “the best chocolate you’ve never tasted,” everything has gotten increasingly sweeter for the confectionary purveyors.
The recently opened National Gallery in Singapore invited Marou, Faiseurs de Chocolat to cobrand limited-edition chocolate bars that will be sold solely at their store. The newly-minted packaging features the design work of Rice Creative who paid homage to The Gallery’s architectural aspects by merging said-elements with traditions of Vietnamese printmaking. The iconography represents the three distinct spaces found at The Gallery which are historic, modern, and transcendent.
Rice Creative has whipped up an exquisite, in-depth look at the making of the new artwork which you can find below:
