Launched in 1992, a group of artists expressed their creativity on the surface of the coffee cup designed by Matteo Thun for illy. Thus, the illy Art Collection was born, which transformed an everyday object into a blank canvas. To date, 126 artists of international fame, from great maestros to young talents, have left their mark.
Thirty years later, the leading names in contemporary art continue to be inspired by the illy white porcelain cup. Together, we have created a unique collection of small works of art you can enjoy with your morning coffee.
