Astier de Villatte x John Derian Beetle Desk Cup
This desk cup is made by one of a few studios in central Paris still actively producing ceramic tableware using traditional 18th century methods. The design is inspired from eclectic antiques collected by company owners Benoit Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli from flee markets and charity shops to give the pieces their signature wonky whimsical style - always featuring their signature milky white glaze over black terracotta.
These stationery specific items are born out of a collaboration with New York designer and interiors extraordinaire John Derian who boats a vast collection of Victorian ephemera and a natural pairing for Astier de Villatte's historical wares.
Dimensions: 8.2 x 9 cm
Material: Glazed black terracotta
