25th Anniversary cup

Designer: Robert Wilson

The dish ran away with the spoon, and from that moment anything was possible! The same way anything is possible when we entrust the white canvas of the illy cup to the hands of an artist. This is how the latest creation of the illy Art Collection was born: THE DISH RAN AWAY WITH THE SPOON everything you can think of is true, designed by the artist Robert Wilson to celebrate 25 years of the collection of artist’s cups. Produced to coincide with the installation of the same name by Robert Wilson at the Magazzini del Sale in Venice, the cup celebrates 25 years of goodness and beauty.
