Il Caffe


Pedro Almodovar 2009

Set of 6 limited edtion artist cups

This signed and numbered, limited edition illy Art Collection cup set was designed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar for illy caffè.

Almodóvar’s six-cup series – each entry paired with an equally vivid saucer -- takes inspiration from six of the famed Spanish director’s most admired films; Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (1988), Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! (1990), High Heels (1991), The Flower of My Secret (1995), Bad Education (2004) and Volver (2006). The images refer to the most well-known works of the master, both in palette and style. The cups’ designs were created by Juan Gatti, an artist who makes graphics for the film-director’s creations.

The individually decorated cups depict his signature themes of love, women — including his favorite lead actress Penélope Cruz — desire, passion and family.
