Ann Demeulemeester - Espresso Cup Off White - Black BAnn Demeulemeester x Serax –
With Dé, the play of chiaroscuro, light and shadow that is so characteristic of the style of Ann Demeulemeester is translated into tableware. The result is a collection of shadow paintings on porcelain. The edges of the fine cups feature a ‘dégradé’, painted by hand in several layers to create a meticulous interplay of lines. This craftsmanship makes each cup unique and enables a wide array of combinations. The arrangement of the different cups can be tailored according to the guest, the atmosphere and what the cup contains. The play of light that occurs when the shadow effects of when the cups and plates touch each other is also extraordinary. A few different variations of black paintings are available.
