Google will soon be launching their latest Android mobile operating system, called KitKat. To commemorate the launch of KitKat, Google teamed up with the makers of KitKat chocolates, Nestlé, to create an exhibition. Nestlé decided to employ ten of South Africa’s design guru’s to create 3D printed chocolate sculptures for the Chocnology exhibition at the  Museum Of African Design (MOAD) in Johannesburg’s Maboneng Precinct.

The artists included Joey HIFI, Marchand Le Roux, Arno Kruger, Muti, Liron Segev, Rene Roussouw, Hans Fouche, Orijin, and Am I Collective.

All of the designs and sculptures had to be created on the Android operating system using freely available 3D modelling tools. The designs were then turned into chocolate by Hans Fouche of Fouche Chocolates with the help of a RepRap 3D printer. 3D printing gave designers the ability to produce highly detailed three-dimensional chocolate artworks.

Check out the chocolate sculptures below.
