Maison Marou is a cafe, patisserie, and gourmet chocolate factory in Saigon, Vietnam. Now able to share much more than just a packaged chocolate bar, the founders of Marou can fully express their spirit, and offer an experience steeped in cacao collecting adventure and gourmet chocolatier know-how. “The house that chocolate bars built”, as it became known, employs a chocolate-bar-shaped unit to base furniture and space design on.

Slabs of plywood and marble reference stacked bars, while vertical rectangular units are repeated as a grid for chocolate bar display. This unit is clearly visible at the ‘chocolate library’ a major feature at the Maison, which showcases all of Marou’s varied bars. Maison Marou is an experimental space where the chocolatiers can tinker and create new kinds of chocolate bars, bon-bons, or pastries from local flavors on a weekly basis.

For this reason, Rice Creative made a movable type system for the menu. Marou’s typeface is applied to chocolate-bar-shaped metal plates which can be arranged and re-arranged for menu wall as well as overhead signage. The letter forms are also molded into small rubber pieces which load into custom made stamps for labelling all packaging and printed matter.
