Descriptions 

 

illy’s passion for art is enhanced by a new collaboration, the partnership with 2012 MONUMENTA edition. The love for art and the desire to support international exhibitions have led the brand to be part of this collaboration. An illy bar decorated by Daniel Buren was presented at the Grand Palais all along the event. Daniel Buren, who had already created an illy art collection in 2004, has designed a new one dedicated to MONUMENTA 2012.

From illy.com: “The illy Art Collection designed by Daniel Buren for Monumenta 2012 – four espresso cups in limited edition – draws on a visual pattern chosen by the artist in 1965 and which subsequently became his signature: alternating white and colored stripes (8.7 centimeters wide), inspired by the pattern of a type of drapery that was very popular at the time, and commonly used on awnings, deckchairs and pillows. The artist employs this “outil visuel” (visual tool) to redefine space and force the viewer to establish a new relationship with disparate places, monuments or objects and thereby changing the perception of reality.
Today Buren’s “visual tool” decorates four black espresso cups with their increasingly wide saucers, akin to a tale being slowly unveiled, first revealing the white and then, with a twist, the green, yellow, red, and blue. The colors are "hidden" underneath the saucers themselves and re-draw both the single object and the whole composition.”

Cups were revealed by May 9 during MONUMENTA 2012 opening. The set is including 4 espresso cups with different sizes saucers (1st time in the history of illy art collection!). The colors underneath the saucers (green, yellow, red, and blue) are matching exactly the colors which are used for MONUMENTA 2012 installation. The top - classical Buren's 8.7cm stripe.


Set is not available yet for sale in illy site and price is not set yet, but can be pre-ordered in http://www.illycups.nl for €144. But you can already buy this set on ebay for $450!

Update June 6 2012 : You can buy this set for €160 from illy.com (Italy) . Very soon in US as well !

 

Update July 9 2012 : 

Daniel Buren latest illy Art Collection "Monumenta" is now exclusively available at illy USA Store . You're invited to purchase this collection in the next 48 hours before they are made available to the general public. Limited quantities, while supplies last.

 

Unfortunately, price really disappoints - $225. The total price with Tax + Ground shipping is reaching $268, making it most expensive original price item.
The price is higher than in illy Europe sites and other internet Europe stores. You can buy “Monumenta” at Ebay.com for $170 - $220 (including international shipping). Oh well, illy , you can do better than this. :-(
