A modern cafe au lait. The Ego breakfast cup and saucer is a generously sized set, capable of taking on all the steamed milk you can manage. The cups are designed to be stackable, making storage a snap. The cup and its handle "fits" just within the outer rim of the saucer, making a separate rim for just the cup unneccessary, so the saucer is usable as a plate as well.
Designed by Stefan Lindfors and manufactured by iittala, the Ego breakfast cup and saucer ($48.) design has been translated into two smaller sized cups as well. A standard sized coffee cup ($36.) and an espresso cup ($26.) look equally balanced and beautiful. To complete the look on the breakfast table, a pitcher ($60.) featuring the same distinctive handle is available, too. From Foster's.
