Italian designer Luca Nichetto has designed a ceramic coffee set to accompany a solo exhibition of his work at Mjölk gallery in Toronto.
Called Sucabaruca and exhibited at this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair, the set includes three cups, a pot, filter and a tray made from Canadian maple wood.
Luca Nichetto decided to make a product for Mjölk after meeting owners John Baker and his wife Juli Daousti in September 2013.
“I immediately came up with the idea of designing a coffee set that aims to combine the modern ritual of filtered coffee, which unites several countries including North America and Scandinavia,” the designer said.
The cups and pot are both hand engraved. They come in four shades – white, grey, blue and pink – and all the materials used to make them were locally sourced.
The Mjölk gallery features furniture and lighting from across Japan and Scandinavia, so Nichetto said he designed Sucabaruca to fit with the gallery’s style.
