The design GRAVITY was applied to the coffee cups by Sebastian Menschhorn himself.
Modern decors inspired by designs from the 18th century
Sebastian Menschhorn lives and works as a graphic and product designer in Vienna.
He uses his in depth cultural and art historical knowledge to translate traditionnal decors, patterns and forms into designs that would be attractive for the modern day consummer. Thus, rooted in tradition and produced with a modern twist, his pieces aim for a timeless feel.
He notably created the “Gravity” decor for Augarten. The espresso cup, limited to 120 pieces, is a special edition inspired by ancient grisaille painting on China. The decor applied by brush to each piece is a visual interpretation of gravity. As the black dots seamlessly float on the cup, we are reminded that gravity holds our universe in delicate balance.
