Le Zootrope de la Manufacture Alain Ducasse


Everyday, Alain Ducasse’s Manufacture of chocolate, located in the heart of Paris, crafts unique artisanal creations.
On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the chocolate factory and, at the same time, the inauguration of a new spot in the French capital, Dadomani gave birth to an unprecedented creation: 160 different 3D-printed sculptures hand-assembled by more than 10 people in countless hours of work for a zoetrope illustrating the approximately 30 steps involved in the creation of a chocolate bonbon. A travelling work with unique features that was proudly displayed at all Manufacture Ducasse locations.
