La Maison du Chocolat Introduces Holiday 'ARTchitectural Christmas' Collection

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Dec 23, 2014) - In the holiday spirit, Nicolas Cloiseau, Master Chef of La Maison du Chocolat, envisions a collection that is both graceful and architectural. Intricate mendiant ornaments suspended in air, light, and space, shine through openwork layers. In an architectural feast, Cloiseau has brought to life a stylized collection of marvelous Christmas trees.

He has envisioned a Tree of Wonder that stands out, reaching for the sky, gently swaying in an imaginary breeze; a tree to defy the limits of chocolate. Twenty-five rings create an elegant structure, nearly transparent. Its twinkling decorations bow to the whims of the wind. Nut-filled chocolate drops hang from imaginary branches by a thread, while being illuminated by a farandole of twinkling garlands.

The fluid lines, transparent and ethereal, hold a trove of details. Flickering between the spirit of geometric shapes and the spirit of Christmas, making a bold statement on art and gourmandise.

Continuing this architectural movement, the chocolate ornament is the epitome of finesse. Its lacework of mendiant weaves the spirit of Christmas into the heart of this tree of wonder with clean lines. The nuts, each one individually placed, all dressed up in gold, add nuance to the chocolate and reflect the magic of Christmas decorations.

Nicolas Cloiseau presents five new creations with the wonders of winter. Citrus from Christmases past, fruits discovered anew, candied fruits, chocolate almond paste, cacaos with spicy, delicate notes...a new look at the cherished flavors of the Holidays.
