Rehberger treats the white surface of the espresso cup designed by Matteo Thun as a blank canvas, decorating it with optical effects and patterns.
The cup and matching saucer create a fascinating visual impact that stimulates the observer to make sense of the patterns. The idea is beautifully absorbed into the interior of the bar and restaurant in the new exhibition building, where the cup is almost camouflaged, a hidden element of an unusual and captivating game, yet part of a unique, complete overall design.

The new illy Art Collection by Tobias Rehberger offers a harmonious combination of curves, lines, colors and light.The optical and geometric motifs that Tobias Rehberger has used also for the design of the cafeteria of the Palazzo delle Esposizioni, at the Giardini of the Biennale in Venice, are reflected on the finest Porselein , and a distinctive camouflage effect is created. The visual perception of the viewer is subject to an illusion. This technique is an essential basis for Rehberger's artistic inspiration.
