This venetian architect manages to profoundly understand and interpret a coffee cap, or rather, a series of cups "Gold" , "Platinum" , "white" presented on the occasion of the 1997 Venice Biennale. VeneXia and its autor thus memorialize end of the millenium Venetian culture and its past splendor.
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.
