Robert Wilson is the artist who has shaped the latest illy Art Collection, a numbered and signed edition of cappuccino cups produced by illy. Inspiration for the collection comes from the Watermill Center, a laboratory for the arts and humanistic sciences founded by Robert Wilson in 1992. Set of 6 cappuccino cups and saucers.

The new illy Art Collection was created during the annual International Summer Program, that for the past 20 years has been hosted by the Watermill Center and led by the founder and Artistic Director, Robert Wilson. The Watermill Center is an interdisciplinary workshop devoted to arts and sciences - here, people from different backgrounds and countries can explore and experience new forms of art, breaking through artistic boundaries.

At this summer’s workshop, five artists - Christopher Knowles, Hope Esser, Willie Filkowski, Clo’e Floirat and Gintare Minelgaite - were chosen to depict the spirit of the Watermill Center on the iconic illy cappuccino cup in collaboration with Robert Wilson. The collection’s designs contain elements from the architecture and grounds of the Watermill Center, references to the art within its walls and recurring themes in Wilson’s work.

The limited edition collectible cups are signed and numbered by artist, and are available in limited quantities. The collection contains six cups and six saucers, a booklet about the artists and their designs and a poster that tells the story of the illy Art Collection.
