Japanese outfit, Nendo has created a new store for ice-cream and chocolate, A Tes Souhaits! Glace et Chocolat, in Tokyo.
The store has been designed to resemble a melting chocolate ice-cream cake.The layered walls are in different shades of chocolate and have been made from a fine aggregate which has the texture of ice-cream.
The curved interior walls are intended to show a melting effect and have cut-out inserts which form the shelves. The shades of brown walls are offset by white floors with square patterns and a solid timber-look ceiling.
The curved walls are complimented with a long white bench that is used as the sole serving counter and runs the length of the store. Attractive stainless steel ice-cream containers provide a functional yet attractive design feature.
The new store shows how good design can thrive in small spaces.
