illy art collection tower sq 2


We are constantly trying to improve the DICS (Dutch Illy art collection site) and make it easier to navigate. 
Totally new is the DICS webshop. We decided to do it like this because we now can serve you quicker, better and more accurate. Even if we're not there for a moment.
With only a few clicks you can see what cups are available, for how much, how many we have (or not) and what the purchase in total is gonna cost you.
Because it's so up to date we kindly ask you to order your cups at any time at our webshop and not by phone or email.
The costs of shipping are very clear and exactly the amount TNT post is charging us for shipping it with priority to the place you want. 
If something may not be totally clear, please do not hesitate to mail us with your question.
