A distillation of the design achievement of 2003's “Tea & Coffee Towers” project, these cups make the results accessible to the wider coffee-drinking public: the designers of each Alessi limited edition coffee & tea service have been asked to design a simple coffee cup, one that would exhibit the essence of the project.
Set of two teacups with saucers in bone china.
