illy Art Collection 30th Anniversary Event

illycaffè celebrates 30 years of the illy Art Collection – the iconic espresso cups that have turned an everyday object into a blank canvas featuring the work of internationally acclaimed artists - with an exhibition at the Maruta Plaza Kitoki area of the Hakone Open Air Museum, from October 22nd to April 2 nd, 2023.

Visitors will be able to discover how 125 international artists of contemporary art have interpreted the historic white cup designed in 1991 by Matteo Thun. At the "illy Art Collection 30th Anniversary Event” people will find a chandelier made of 216 cups, exhibiting the most emblematic ones among the 456 cups that represent one of the largest collections of contemporary art in the world.

A cup of illy coffee symbolizes the union of good taste, beauty, and sustainability. This alliance finds substance in the illy Art Collection, the everyday objects in which the various languages of the illy universe have been coming together for the last 30 years. Anyone enjoying an illy espresso in one of the collection’s cups can combine, in one simple gesture, the flavor and aroma of illy’s sustainable quality Arabica blend with a complete aesthetic, visual, and tactile experience in close touch with contemporary art.

The illy Art Collection of La Biennale Arte 2022 designed by Felipe Baeza, Giulia Cenci, Precious Okoyomon, Alexandra Pirici, Aki Sasamoto, and Cecilia Vicuña, who are 6 artists selected by curator and Golden Lion Cecilia Alemani among those exhibiting their works at La Biennale Arte 2022, will be on sale for the first time in Japan.

Original goods such as notebooks and tote bags will be available for purchase only at this event as well.

The Hakone Open Air Museum café will also offer a special menu of drinks and food made with Italian ingredients, including illy espresso and cappuccino, as well as sweets made in collaboration with the Kichijoji patisserie “Stefano Anna”.
