Long before his products for Target were ubiquitous and in the same decade his Post Modern temples in Portland and Louisville delighted [and confounded], Michael Graves designed The Little Dipper Coffee Set for Swid Powell. Partial to filter-drip coffee, Graves created this set to meet his own needs – and rigorous aesthetic standards. Like in his architecture, he employed an expressive color palette and figurative motifs to charming effect – the terracotta colored bases represent the warmth and color of coffee and the blue waves decorating the sides of the set, water. This is a rare opportunity to own an icon of Post Modernism in tabletop form. And have a great cup of joe.
