Topographical metal tubes at a confectionary

X-Tu Architects, a French firm, creates a 3D topographical map using extruded metal tubes to make a sinuous curvature around chocolatier Patrick Roger’s Paris boutique. Roger’s chocolate sculptures explore the changing (edible) states of chocolate, from molten to solid and back again, and x-tu mimics this by showing how a seemingly linear form, a metal tube, can be given curvilinear shape.
