This espresso cup forms part of Villeroy & Boch’s award winning New Wave collection. New Wave with its characteristic wave shapes and curved accents is modern design at its finest. In 2004 Villeroy and Boch was granted the very first German National Industry 'Award for Innovation' for the design and the production engineering of New Wave. The highly innovative nature of the product was pivotal for achieving this award, which is demonstrated in the unconventional design as well as the specially developed technology. The wavy design is created by an innovative manufacturing process, with the handles drawn out of the same piece of clay as the body. Modern, functional and durable for everyday use, New Wave is easy to fall in love with. Create a unique place setting with a range of premium porcelain and complete the look with complementing glassware and cutlery for maximum effect. Dishwasher & microwave safe.
