This espresso cup set features a distinctive blue pattern drawn by Tokyo-born, Swiss-based graphic designer Aoi Huber Kono, who collaborated with the renowned Japanese studio Drill Design to produce a line of cups and mugs.
Bright, cheerful colours are a signature feature of Aoi Huber Kono’s work, and the team at Drill Design say their aim was to bring to life Aoi Huber Kono’s work through ceramics – “to bring a little bit of joyfulness into daily life”.
This line of ceramics and tableware is called Sabato (‘Saturday’ in Italian), and has been designed with everyday use in mind. Every detail, from the thickness of the rim to the cup’s size and shape, considers practicality, usability and comfort. Drill Design were “meticulous about the details, so that they match the atmosphere the drawing creates”.
