Mechanical Chocolatier

We were invited with creating a chocolate themed Rube Goldberg machine, so we looked at the world of the artisan Chocolatier, and thought about how chocolate flows.

This machine takes inspiration from the Chocolatiers counter, and processes bars of chocolate into a fine grated powder for maximum flavour when tasting.

Featuring 300 chrome steel bearings, running around two lifts and several different mechanisms, it creates a mechanical world of sounds, movements and all set on a chocolate base.

The machine was installed in the Harbour City mall in Hong Kong where it stayed for a month during the chocolate festival.
