The new illy Art Collection is inspired by Watermill Center, an interdisciplinary space created by Robert Wilson to provide inspiration for an international community of artists.
The Watermill Center illy Art Collection is the result of the workshop held in 2013 at the International Summer Program, attended by almost 100 artists from 30 different countries. The espresso cup collection includes a design by Robert Wilson plus 5 other designs—by Christopher Knowles, Hope Esser, Willie Filkowski, Clo’e Floirat and Gintare Minelgaite—which were selected from among the entries.
