Overview

The Set of Six Assorted Espresso Cups was designed by Catherine Lévy and Sigolène Prébois for design brand Tsé-Tsé. The cups of irregular form are made in Hungary in fine white porcelain and are hand-painted with real platinum or gold enamel. The white color of the glazed porcelain has a slight hint of blue. The cups are cast following a traditional method. Carefully crafted, they are intentionally irregular: their imperfections are not defects, they are part of the design and make each cup unique. The porcelain is durable and impact resistant. The platinum and gold decors make the cups precious and fragile and they are not safe in microwave ovens and should not be put in a dishwasher or washed with an abrasive sponge.

Catherine Lévy and Sigolène Prébois are the founders and designers of Tsé-Tsé Associées, a French design brand specializing in lighting, tableware and home accessories. Through the years, they have become known for their fierce creative independence. Inspired by their travels, they like to play with colors and to create unexpected associations, always with a hint of humour. Some of their creations have become iconic, like the April Vase, which has become part of the permanent collections of the Centre Pompidou National Museum of Modern Art.
