Dutch design studio Michiel Cornelissen Ontwerp has unveiled the XOCO 3D printer, a creative cooking tool to create customised objects in chocolate. The XOCO 3D printer is based on a polar coordinate system with a rotating build plate and a single pillar from which both printhead and glass cover are suspended. Everything in the design contributes to giving the process of printing a visually open impression, adding to the experience of creating customised sweets.

Special attention is given to the interactive aspect of the process with a glanceable multicolour LED ring guiding the user through the printing process. All elements of the XOCO ecosystem of product, graphics, interaction, app and consumables contribute to a perfect creative experience.
