For the first edition of the Mirzam Design Series, the firm’s chocolate makers have worked in collaboration with Emirati multimedia artist and photographer Sheikha Wafa Hasher Al Maktoum, to create a limited edition chocolate bar and wrapper for Dubai Design Week 2016.
Considered one of the most talented multimedia designers in the UAE, Wafa has built an exceptional portfolio of work. For this collaboration, Sheikha Wafa’s creativity has been taken beyond the studio, to create both a unique recipe and use it as the inspiration for developing the paper wrapper (a flamboyant series of illustrations, featuring celestial galaxy’s, historical monsters and maps).
The recipe created features toasted and lightly broken sesame seeds, then infused with orange oil, which have been presented in 65% single origin dark chocolate from Ghana. Watch these chocolate bars being made in our museum style Factory, and experience each step of the production process before each bar is wrapped by hand in Sheikha Wafa’s signature geometric mashrabiya style designs.
