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.
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.
A Baltom bar, my Moleskine and a pen.
