Baltom - The luxury of imperfection

icon icon

The luxury of imperfection. The taste of craftsmanship

"We believe in the surprise of contamination, the pleasure of craftsmanship, the thrill of the risk.” This series of 8 chocolates is the first Baltom project, to bring traditional, rigorous craft processes back to the forefront, with a contemporary taste and breakage aesthetics. In an increasingly industrialised, standardised world, real luxury is being able to allow yourself a slightly imperfect product, completely handmade, with those small expedients and craft care for detail, and for its limited nature in quantity terms. Baltom has chosen to narrate gourmet chocolate with a design inspired by the elements that are always present in our lives, from fashion, to technology, interior design.


Q&A with Giacomo from BALTOM

Your town. And three words to describe it.
Milan: open, dynamic, hidden. 

Three words to describe your projects.
Daring, surprising, multi-sensory. 

A colour.

A taste.

Antique, modern or contemporary?

The most precious item you own?
None; the concept of home is an old one for me. 

Where is design going?
I believe and hope that it is going towards greater social sensitivity.

Where are you going?
I’m trying to understand who I really am. 

Three words to describe Italy.
Brilliant, discouraged, unaware. 

If not in Italy, where?
China, the only place I can live in besides Milan. 

Never without?
A Baltom bar, my Moleskine and a pen. 

A motto.
Always wonder.
