1001, Compartés Chocolatier

Eighty-five colorful chocolate bar packages are mounted to a wall. Ten naked chocolate bars are displayed in a case below. The packaging primes our desire for what's inside. The designs brim with bold, playful collages and drawings of magical worlds and fantastic landscapes. Owner and designer Jonathan Grahm carries this visual opulence to the design of the bars themselves. Some are covered in edible gold leaf; others are studded with dried fruit or rainbow sprinkles.
