Godiva Chocoiste by Wonderwall

Japanese interior design company Wonderwall have completed a chocolatier’s shop in Harajuku, Japan, where chocolate seems to drip from the walls and ceiling.
Designed for chocolatier Godiva, the two-storey shop has a glass front making the effect clearly visible from the street.

This is Godiva’s new concept flagship store. Godiva’s idea was “treat thyself”. Wonderwall’s intention was to add a breath of fresh air to the more traditional image Godiva instill. The shop features humorous design details such as “melting chocolate” ceiling combined with the primarily classical interior design.
The boutique’s popular and fashionable location of Harajuku has also been considered in the overall design. Passers-by can view both its entrance as well as the costumers enjoying their time with chocolate on the second floor cafe.

The lower section of the downstairs walls is painted white, contrasting with the chocolate-colored paint that appears to seep down from the molded ceiling on the second floor.

Dripping with SWEETNESS !!!
