Rodchenko cup and saucer

Rodchenko

If you fancy introducing some Russian modernist chic into your home, this striking cup and saucer has been produced to accompany Tate Modern's current exhibition, Rodchenko and Popova: Defining Constructivism. The exhibition explores the role of these two artists in post-revolution communist Russia. As their main aim was to move art out of the gallery and into everyday life, they created dynamic designs for books, textiles and theatre design, for example, as well as for the highly important business of drinking tea. 

It is based on a 1922 design by Alexsandr Rodchenko, realised in fine bone china, and it reflects the simple and powerful use of colour and pattern associated with the artist that remains influential today. It costs £31.32 from the exhibition shop.
