The Best Kind of Math Is Edible, Chocolate Math

Chocolatier Rafael Mutter's Chocolate Mill looks like a solid, cylindrical block of chocolate. In reality, it's ten-layers thick. As a a crank-turned blade shaves wafers of chocolate from the top, the underlying layers, each one flavored with a unique pattern of chocolate shapes, is revealed.


A timelapse of the piece appears above. According to Chris Jobson, it was designed by Mutter in collaboration with Studio Wieke Somers for a retrospective of Dutch furniture designer Gerrit Rietveld. See more stills of the piece at Colossal.
