Paris: Seems like the Paris Metro surely has some sweet treat for the public out there.
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Paris Regional Express Network (RER) linking west and east Paris, local design studio Noir Vif created special chocolate bars inspired by the enameled tile that clads the walls of the line’s stations, says a report in webloid Curbed.com.
There are three editions of chocolate, each corresponding to the Auber, Gare de Lyon, and Nation station.
The Auber chocolate is shaped “in a swath of circular mosaic tiles”, while the Gare de Lyon edition is “formed by a pattern of hexagonal tiles”.
For the Nation station, the chocolate forms “a simple square pattern”.
This project draws its inspiration from the Briare enameled tiles that have been used to cover and protect the walls of the stations.
