Godiva Chocolatier is a well- known chocolate institution around the world, but what is not so well-known to me, is this beautiful Godiva store in Japan. Located in the Harajuku district in Tokyo, the amazing interiors to the store were designed by the Tokyo interior design team Wonderwall.
This is conceptual and playful design at its best, with the interiors created from a child’s perspective. Who has not watched Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and wondered what it would be like to enter a wonderland devoted to all things sweet, where you could literally eat the walls? Although I don’t recommend trying to eat these specific walls, I do think that sitting down to eat something sweet within metaphorically melting walls and ceilings is a good second option. The lighting in these interiors is also spectacularly clever. It’s almost as if the non-melting surfaces have been turned into the crisp wrapping of a chocolate bar through the positioning of light. I propose we take a small trip to Japan and have some chocolate.
