Chocolate maker Marcolini arrives in London with festive pop-up

Belgian design studio Pinkeye has designed a London pop-up store for chocolate brand Marcolini. The 3D printed puppets, based on the founder Pierre Marcolini, are one of the highlights as they carry the chocolates into the store.

3D printed puppets

Pinkeye designed an abstract winter display filled with chocolate Christmas trees in a blizzard for Marcolini's pop-up store in Regent Street. Included are a series of miniature versions of Pierre Marcolini carrying the brand's chocolate around.

 

He was 3D scanned for this purpose and then several small, bronze-coloured puppets were created to bring additional life to the display. There is a life-size version of the founder in the back of the store as well.

 

The Marcolini Christmas 2015 collection consists of chocolate crystals and large chocolate Christmas trees with vertical icicles because of a blizzard.
