Exquisitely conceived by Japanese designer, Teruhiro Yanagihara, these 1616/Arita TY White Series Cups take coffee to the next level. Light and graceful in the hand, this Arita-yaki ceramic ware has a heritage that is said to date back to the 17th century.
Even with their origins in the distant past, the minimal design of these hand-made ceramic cups is distinctly modern. The subtle, conical body of each cup connects with a squared, ‘D’ shaped handle. The lip is gently flared, offering a relaxed, comforting mouth-feel.
The TY ‘White Series’ range includes a small espresso cup, a mid-sized coffee cup and a modernist mug for larger servings.
