Yes, we love the Illy Art Cups and each year we’re looking forward to discover the new and exciting collections. This year the Illy Art Cups collection pays tribute to Chinese contemporary art with artist Liu Wei. The Illy Art Cups edition 2013 is inspired by the work ‘The Purple Air’ referring towards always expanding cities and the structural changes in the urban landscape that go along with that urban expansion.
The artist gives his vision on this phenomenon with subtle lines and unconventional colours that evoke a feeling of continuity between cup and saucer. The Illy Art Cup collection 2013 is available in sets of 6 espresso cups or 6 cappuccino cups with matching saucers. Available as of october 2013 in selected stores and the Illy online shop
