Thin layers are gradually shaved away from a cylindrical block of chocolate to reveal the embedded geometric patterns in this installation by Dutch designer Wieki Somers at the Vitra Design Museum.

Somers worked with Swiss chocolatier Rafael Mutter to create the Chocolate Mill, which is adapted from a cheese-cutter. A blade pivoting on the centre of the block is rotated to scrape back one layer at a time, making thin curly shavings to serve to visitors.

The slab is made up of smaller pieces of different types of chocolate, arranged so that new patterns emerge as the surface wears away.
