Anish Kapoor designs Illy cup

Indian sculptor Anish Kapoor is the latest artist invited to design an espresso coffee cup for Illy, as part of a limited-edition.

Just like most of his creations, the new illy coffeeware has a metallic touch and is dedicated to blending emptiness/fullness and external/ internal in one piece.

Here Kapoor has left the exterior of the cup untouched but silvered the interior, and adding a hole in the center of the saucer. If you place the saucer atop the cup, which is also platinum, you subvert the use of the cup and create your own little art work.
