Covet: Coffee Set by Luca Nichetto + Mjolk

sucabaruca-mjolk

Venetian designer Luca Nichetto (who I met and spent the day with at Foscarini in Venice a few years ago), and the amazing gallery Mjölk in Toronto, Canada, have collaborated to create a beautiful coffee set called Sucabaruca.

The project involved many people from different cultures and countries: the owners of Mjölk, Juli and John, who collect and distribute products from primarlily Scandinavia and Japan; the Canadian ceramist Alissa Coe, who made the prototypes; Lera Moiseeva, Russian/New York designer and artist who contributed to the development of the coffee set in collaboration with Nichetto’s studios in Sweden and Italy; and Elena Freddi, collaborator at the studio in Stockholm.

Luca Nichetto + Mjölk Opening
January 22, 2014, 7pm—9pm at Mjölk, Toronto
