Q / Oscar Niemeyer

Q / Oscar Niemeyer

Check out this delicious design by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. The edible curvaceous chocolate is part of Q – the recently launched company by Samantha Aquim, chef and head of the chocolate division at her family’s restaurant business. As chef, Aquim has developed a process to extract only the purest and richest flavors from the cocoa beans, and choosing Niemeyer’s design creates an instantly recognizable form for her work.   Perhaps, Niemeyer found inspiration in his Auditório Ibirapuera? Now, imagine if that were chocolate?

Compare the chocolate to the Audiotório after the break.

As seen on Cool Hunting.  Image of the Audiotório from Pedro featured in our Best of Flickr.
