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 1616.Even with their origins in the distant past, the minimal design of these handmade 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 Series range includes a small espresso cup, a mid-sized coffee cup and a modernist mug for larger servings.
