In case you missed this year’s selection of Wallpaper* Handmade goods at Salone, the publication recently released sketches of the prized products (and a few projects, too). Our favorites, below.

The Structure of Chocolate, by Pierre Marcolini, Patternity, and Toby Winteringham
To craft a container as lovely as the delicacies inside, Patternity and Toby Winteringham used sycamore and fumed oak to hold “inlaid” chocolates in a pattern reminiscent of the chocolate molecule theorbromine (which is now our favorite molecule).

High + Dry cocktail, by Caorunn Gin, Ryan Chetiyawardana, and Michael Ruh
UK’s two-time bartender of the year Ryan Chetiyawardana combined Caorunn’s Scottish gin with dandelion bitters, chamomile, and grapefruit for a fizzy cocktail stored and served in glass artist Michael Ruh’s beautiful handblown bottle-and-tumbler set.

Coffee Kettle and Trivet, byt Iacoli + McAllister and Coming Soon Coffee
As we know, a great cup of pour-over coffee is hard to beat. For their fix, Wallpaper* looked to Seattle-based Coming Soon Coffee (started by an architect and barista) and locals Jamie Iacoli and Brian McAllister, known for dexterously mixing materials like brass, copper, marble, wood, and powder-coated steel.

Wild Feast picnic basket, by Neri + Hu
A Chinese take on the quintessentially British picnic basked. This one’s sponsored by Jaguar, which explains the carbon fiber basket slats.

Kitchen Knives and Case, by laContrie and Perceval
The cutlery experts at Perceval paired up with Paris-based leather studio laContrie for this travel-ready calfskin and suede kit of ebony-handled knives.

Tulip juice bar, by Carl Turner and AHEC 
Instead of creating another coffee bar for Salone this year, architect Carl Turner was tasked with designing a space to serve fresh Lovage juice at the Ace Hotel London that was just a clean as the ingredients. He repurposed a previous Wallpaper* collaboration with AHEC’s “natural and heat-treated” tulipwood to craft the sleek slatted benches, bar, and storage space.
