    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

    Review from Istanbul Turkey

    I purchased (in order to renew my) 16 16 Arita coffee cups which I had purchased during a trip to Japan maybe about 8 or 10 years ago now. I loved the Arita cups and used them over the years a lot daily as they were my favorite cups to enjoy my morning coffee. When one of them fell and broke a few months ago I was sorry as I had only one left and did not know how I could ever get a new one in Istanbul if I would loose the last one at home. Thanks to Kurasu! I found (as I as was searching one day through Internet) the Kurasu site and there I happily found out that there were available stock of my favorite coffee cups of 16 16 Arita to order. I did order regular size cups as well as espresso cups. I am so happy they are arrived safe and in good order to my house here in Istanbul Turkey. They are really super quality white porcelain cups which by time get their own characteristic change in color fading a little brownish through using a lot. They are so shick, minimal, sleek and pleasure to look at when enjoying your morning sip. Thank you so much Kurasu-san!! I would not be able to find easily if it were not your site to make my purchase.

    Drinking good coffee is fun, but drinking it from such beautiful cups is better. Thanks to Teruhiro Yanagihara for allowing us to experience a little moment of happiness in this difficult period. And thanks especially to Kurasu for sharing this passion with us. All the best from an Italian coffee lover living in Belgium.

    Beautiful Arita espresso cups

    Bought Arita espresso cups as a Christmas gift. Arrived promptly to Australia, and they were beautiful, as expected. A pleasure to look at and use, and great service from Kurasu.
