Michele De Lucchi - Le Coppe della filosofia / Sèvres - Baccarat
Two great French manufactures, Sèvres - City of ceramic and Baccarat have both made available to Michele De Lucchi their experience, histories and skills. They are producing, simultaneously, one in a hard-paste porcelain, the other in cut crystal, three forms of stemmed cups, all born from the imagination of the Milanese architect.
This new book, the 25th of the collection “Les Cahiers”, traces the various stages of production within both factories.
Happy with the success of other collaborations with great contemporary designers, and sharing the same approach to perfection, these two celebrated houses decided to undertake this ground breaking edition. The result is an exceptional collection, Le Coppe della Filosofia. These stemmed cups are realised in different materials chosen so the dexterity, the flair and the inspiration can properly be expressed. The Coppa dell' etica is flat and encompassing, whilst the Coppa della mistica, is high and refined. The Coppa dell' estetica, the original matrix of the project, is the synthesis of it. Each cup rises, as if in levitation, or in spiritual meditation.
Limited edition. The first 100 copies of the book are accompanied with an original signed and numbered silkscreen, specially created by Michele De Lucchi for this “Cahier.” Size: 53 x 35 cm.
