    MODERN DESIGNER COFEEWARE WITH HISTORIC ORIGINS

    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 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.

    Ideal capacities:

    Espresso cup: 60 ml
    Coffee cup: 130 ml
    Mug: 230 ml
    Plate Size:
    Square plate 130: W127×D105×H15mm
    Square plate 165: W165×D140×H15mm

    Gray

    Coffee Cup, Gray

    It’s real easy on the eyes and has a pleasant heft to it. Doesn’t keep the drink hot for too long but that isn’t an issue for my morning cuppa.
