A bright and playful tea service, whose pieces can be freely combined: a horse wraps around the teapot, another stretches over three plates, a motif sneaks up inside a cup... On a whim, you can easily mix and match the designs for every occasion: breakfast, morning coffee or high tea. To create this service, artist Gianpaolo Pagni drew inspiration from jockey silks and the world of cartoons. “I envisioned a horse with an elongated back that could hold several riders. A kind of limousine horse in the style of Tex Avery,” he says.
