Anish Kippor Illy Espresso set - IN STOCK - What do you see when you look into a hole? Usually, the answer is the bottom. But that's hardly the answer when someone as prolific as Mumbai-born British sculptor Anish Kapoor is designing it. Kapoor has created a limited edition set of artistic cups and saucers for Italian coffee brand, illy.

These new illy cups and saucers, designed around the themes of doubt, ambivalence, error, mystery, surprise and desire, seem to make the act of drinking coffee more profound. 

With an external ceramic finish, these limited edition cups and saucers are platinum-plated on the inside, and there's a deep hole in the centre of the saucer. 

The idea is that when the saucer is placed on top (to keep the coffee warm?), the flickering reflections take form and thus blend emptiness and fullness, external internal in one piece. And illy refers to it as 'an interactive, sensory experience meant to delight and surprise'. So when you place your saucer over the cup, the dimensions become blurred and form an intriguing sculpture. Deep isn't it?
