With his artistic technique, Matteo Attruia designed the new illy Art Collection under the premises of making your coffee moment a creative experience by allowing you to choose the message.
Combine a cup and saucer to compose your message. Choose from 36 possible combinations.
Matteo Attruia decomposes the new illy Art Collection in 36 combinations of different messages, each with its own meaning, but always positive.
He decorates each cup with a word or phrase using a “ransom note” font style intended to highlight the contradiction between the traditionally devious use of this style and the affable connotation of the chosen messages. In this collection, the cup and the saucer are inextricably linked, coming together to reveal the unique message you have authored.
Matteo Attruia has worked in different parts of the world and exhibited in Rome, Milan, New York, Nova Gorica, Paris, Trieste. His work, always veined with irony, finds doubts precisely where there seem to be only certainties. He uses varied means of expression in his elegant and ironic juxtapositions, including painting, photography and reused objects, and now the illy cup.
