New 2012 Cup - illy Art Collection designed by Kiki Smith

September 19,2012 illy announced new illy Art Collection designed by Kiki Smith

The American artist’s flowing, poetic images are beautifully expressed on the canvas of the illy cups and cans, reinterpreting the European decorative arts tradition of flower painting on ceramics with a fresh, whimsical twist. The fluid and fanciful designs of Kiki Smith collection transform the simple pleasure of drinking a cup of illy into an even richer sensory experience, heightened by the visual and tactile aesthetics of contemporary art.

Her work is held in more than forty important public collections in the United States and abroad.
