ILLY ART COLLECTION - THE WATERMILL CENTER
The new illy Art Collection is inspired by Watermill Center, an interdisciplinary space created by Robert Wilson to provide inspiration for an international community of artists.
The Watermill Center illy Art Collection is the result of the workshop held in 2013 at the International Summer Program, attended by almost 100 artists from 30 different countries.
This set contains 2 x espresso cups, 1 designed by Robert Wilson & 1 by Clo’e Floirat.
Robert Wilson is one of the most important and celebrated exponents of the visual arts and theatre.
His theatrical work combines artistic genres such as dance, music, prose, sculpture and light. His works have a powerful aesthetic presence and an intense emotional content.
Clo’e Floirat divides her time between France and New York, working as an artist and art critic. After studying design at the Ecole Supérieure d'Art et de Design in Reims, and at the Design Accademy in Eindhoven, she spent five years living in Berlin. She studies art criticism in London and currently her works combine art and writing with a critical approach known as “drawing Crit’writing”. Her interpretation of the Watermill Center translates into a plan of the building, which adorns the surface of the espresso cup. The inspiration for this work came from Clo’e’s impression of the center when she first visited it years ago: “The grass, the gardens, the facade, the windows, trees and light – it was all part of an equation of lines that created a space”.
