This collection was created by two students from the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. The collaboration between illy and Saint Martins College led to a competition among senior-year students. A prestigious international jury selected an idea by Ross Cooper and Neil Aitken, in which only the saucers were decorated.
6 ESPRESSO CUPS WITH SAUCERS
The Central Saint Martins College in London is one of the most famous schools of art and design in the world, an ideal setting of creative collaboration for illycaffe' and the best graphic design students. The competition for an illy collection was won by Ross Cooper and Neil Aitken.
Their collection contains an element of surprise. As you move closer to the cup you only see a shadow on the saucer, which is definitely not the cup's. But just lift the cup up and you will see the shadow is one of Saint Martin's students peering up at you. And his expression leaves no room for impassivity. WITH ORIGINAL BOX
These are new and unused, however the box is tatty which is reflected in the price however cups are perfect excellent and unused.
