If coffee is a passion that can be experienced with all 5 senses, all the materials in which we serve and even package coffee should appeal to the soul. illy came up with a creative idea 20 years ago, thinking that the objects we use in daily life should add meaning to our lives. Simple but meaningful everyday objects, such as coffee cups, began to be transformed into artistic objects.

With this genius project, illy created the illy Art Collection by adding creative touches to ceramic cups to add pleasure to your espresso experience.

Jeff Koons, James Rosenquist, Julian Schnabel, Robert Rauschenberg, Michelangelo Pistoletto and Marina Abramovic are just a few of the illy Art Collection's contemporary designers.
