Cailler (Nestlé) asked Gerhard to produce a giant heart for the 200th anniversary of Cailler and of course, it is made out of their in-house exquisite milk chocolate. 

For this occasion, 200 kg (440 lbs)  of the precious chocolate was processed by hand. It shows the different properties of chocolate: splashed, dripped, carved, piped, modelled and cast.

It is now a new beloved tourists attraction point where often selfies are taken while kissing each other.

That's actually the title: For the love of chocolate!

Location: Cailler chocolate museum, Broc, Switzerland

The chocolate room, Germany

Halloren, the oldest chocolate manufactory of Germany, has also a beautiful chocolate museum there. They decided to upgrade their existing chocolate room with the production of completely new objects in solid chocolate and asked Gerhard to be the project manager of such a huge task. Together with his team and the Chocolatier team of Halloren, they managed to deliver an incredible and maybe Germany's most impressive chocolate room with 1450 kg (3200 lbs) of chocolate used in around 5000 working hours.

Gerhard also created a freestyle chocolate "universe" solely dedicated to his concept of the natural process of ageing, where the moving ball and the shadow games look like gears of a clockwork and showing the movement of time. The ageing process within such a medium of chocolate becomes therein visible. He used hundreds of different parts in white, milk, dark and coloured chocolate from 4 different continents, some chocolate crystals even having aged already more than 9 years. That means, his personal chocolate universe and the different locations he worked at around the globe are merged together to one big artwork and will hopefully be enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of visitors over the next 10 years.
