Minimalissimo


Speaking of Anish Kapoor, I saw in the Museum of Contemporary Art store these beautifully designed espresso cups for illy. Of the piece, the manufacturer writes:

Anish Kapoor has played around with the illy cup and subverted its use: by placing the platinum saucer with the hole in the centre on the top, the flickering reflections become form and touch on themes such as doubt, ambivalence, error, mystery, surprise and the desire to understand.

Perhaps a bit pricey at $90, but nonetheless a gorgeous set of objects. Unknown to me until recently, illy have collaborated with many artists for their Art Collection range, including Minimalissimo-featured Daniel Buren, Marina Abromovic and Robert Rauschenberg.
