" Les Petits Magiques "
I collaborated with a cook/confectioner
Ms. Maki Watanabe who made chocolates, and I did illustrations & design.
The title "Les Petits Magiques" means " Magical Little Things" in French---
inspired by the fact that just a smack of chocolate changes our mood, like magic.
Then the images of the magicians arose, who give you truffles to enchant you.
(But why in French ? --- because it's chocolate !)

There are 4 truffles in the coffret of "Les Petits Magiques" .
Each truffle is a gift from the magician who represents "flamme=flame","eau=water","bois=forest" and "mineral=mineral".
"flame" is spicy with ginger & blackpepper, "water" contains juicy passionfruit & lemon, "forest" tastes rich with praline of hazelnut & allspice, and "mineral" has the salt of Guerande in it !
4 truffles in original package with minicard=1000yen; SOLD OUT, thank you!
The package was designed to hold the minicard to display the illustrations.
It was like designing a book, because the package is not only a container of "things" but also that of "experience" or "memory" and is also portable . That's what I learned from the guests at this exhibition.
