The BonBonist debuts with truly tasteful design
In time for the festive season, The BonBonist confectionery shop has launched at Pacific Place.
Bright white with gold touches, the shop plays on geometry with glass display cubes stacked around two sides of the open-plan store.
A white circular table used as a wrapping station is the only furnishing apart from the counter along the right-hand side of the shop, behind a tall, stylised “B” at the front.
Inside the display cases, the sweets themselves add colour accents to the overall neutral decor.
Customers can mix and match bonbons from three or eight crystal cubes into a sweet box to take with them. They can personalise their candy boxes with ribbons and stickers at the gift-wrapping station.
“The BonBonist’s idea is to create a special confectionery experience that enlivens all our senses – to reveal the inner child in each and every one of us,” says the shop’s founder and curator Olivia Niddam, who has had more than 10 years of international experience in confectionery.
More than 70 sweets and chocolates from Europe make up the range at the shop, which also features 10 confectionary characters. Flavours include cola, cinnamon, corn, chili, coconut and ginger, and there are vegan as well as lactose- and gelatin-free offerings.
