Designers are inspired by the illy cup handle. By turning the handle into a figurehead, Luca Trazzi turns the cup into a gondola, wich glides away in its triple version of white, platinum and gold. VeneXia was produced for the 47th edition of the Venice biennale: by making an everyday item like a cup valuable, Trazzi is paying a playful tribute to his roots in veneto and to the town which hosts the most prestigious exhibition of contemporary art.
