Mona Hatoum espresso cups are an amalgamation of shapes and colors that resemble the typical motif of the Kefiah, a traditional Arabian headdress, decorated with fishing nets and olive leaves. A structural reinterpretation that conveys a profound story about work, sacrifice and interpersonal relationships.

Each Illy art collection contains a set of 6 Italian espresso cups and saucers.

Mona Hatoum: in between desire and fascination

Born in Beirut to a Palestinian family, Mona Hatoum settled in London in 1975, following the outbreak of civil war in Lebanon. She began her career in the mid-1980s with a series of performances and videos before moving her focus to installations and sculptures in the early 1990s. She loves to involve the viewer by awakening conflicting emotions of desire and repulsion, fear and fascination.
