The Chocolate Room
an immersive exhibit inspired by Roald Dahl's children's novel, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
3D Visualization + VR
The Chocolate Room, turns a childhood fantasy into a reality. The exhibit strives to transport visitors out of their stressful, digitally intoxicated lives and in to a pure, wondrous filled candy land straight out of every child's dream. Through touch, play, sight and smell, visitors are encouraged to connect with their inner child, and immerse themselves within a purely physical, tangible world. Suitable for everyone, The Chocolate Room experience reminds us that life can be just as lighthearted, unexpected and remarkable as our child like selves have imagined it to be.
The Chocolate Room exhibit is represents a small portion of Roald Dahls' fantasy and give a glimpse into the mysterious world of Willy Wonka's factory. The chocolate room is a candy land complete with a chocolate flowing river and edible candy trees, mushrooms, grass and foliage. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a story with dark undertones, so I wanted contrast the bright colored candy land with a cold and industrial background, causing guests to question their surroundings.
The exhibit is broken up into several zones and photo moments where guests can interact with the environment and its props. There is a candy swing and mushroom stools for guests to sit, chocolate tubes guests can watch flow up and down, and candy pumpkins and jawbreakers guests can pick up and roll around.
The Chocolate Room exhibit is a personal student project, and is in no way affiliated with Roald Dalh or the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory franchise.
