The Lumière au Chocolate: A solid chocolate lamp

It takes a lot for me to resist eating a piece of chocolate that is placed in front of me, and I’m sure many of you would agree. Even a stunning piece of art of like this Lumière au Chocolate by designer Alexander Lervik makes me want to just gorge it entirely. He designed this chocolate lamp as an interactive piece of art that reveals itself slowly as time passes. An incandescent light hides inside a big block of real chocolate. Once the light is switched on the chocolate begins to warm and melt from the inside. After about 15 minutes, the chocolate completely melts away, and all you have light. The artist is calling the lamp “The Poetry of Light” and it truly lives up to its name. It is completely dark in the beginning, and slowly reveals its light “mimicking light spreading along the horizon at sunrise”. Watching the light penetrate through the holes and slowly grow is a sight to behold!


The Lumière au Chocolate by Alexander Lervik has been devised based on extensive testing involving the melting process. It is his latest project in the Lervik 100 collection, and was unveiled on Monday 4th February at Galleri Kleerup Jacobs torg 3 in Stockholm.
