Japanese interior design company Wonderwall have completed a chocolatier's shop in Harajuku, Japan, where chocolate seems to drip from the walls and ceiling.
The lower section of the downstairs walls is painted white, contrasting with the chocolate-coloured paint that appears to seep down from the moulded ceiling on the second floor.
Designed for chocolatier Godiva, the two-storey shop has a glass front making the effect clearly visible from the street.

Here's a little bit of text from Wonderwall:
This is Godiva's new concept flagship store. Godiva's idea was "treat thyself". Wonderwall's intention was to add a breath of fresh air to the more traditional image Godiva instill. The shop features humorous design details such as "melting chocolate" ceiling combined with the primarily classsical interior design. The boutique's popular and fashionable location of Harajuku has also been considered in the overall design. Passers-by can view both its entrance as well as the costumers enjoying their time with chocolate on the second floor cafe.
