Daniel Buren Espresso Cups
Set of 4 espresso cups and saucers
Daniel Buren was born in the suburbs of Paris and graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Métiers d’Art art school in Paris in 1960. In 1965 he adopted the 8.7 cm stripes that became his signature, and which are inspired by a type of drapery fabric that is very common in France and throughout the world. In 1966 he was one of the founders of the minimalist conceptual group Buren, Mosset, Parmentier, Toroni. As early as his first collective exhibition, “Prospect 68” in Düsseldorf, and his personal exhibition at Milan’s Galleria Apollinaire, both in 1968, he used architecture and painting together, working ‘in situ’. In 1986 he represented France at the Venice Biennale and won the Golden Lion Award for “Best Pavilion”.
