Luca Nichetto is an industrial designer who splits his time between Venice and Stockholm. John Baker and Juli Daoust run a lifestyle store and gallery in Toronto called Mjolk. The three met by chance last year – Nichetto was in Canada for the Interior Design Show, and, on the advice of a friend, dropped by Baker and Daoust's showroom. They hit it off instantly and, after a 15-minute chat, decided to collaborate.

Nichetto wanted to create a coffee set – he's Italian, strong brew is a daily ritual. Daost and Baker introduced him to local artisans – ceramist Alissa Coe, sculptor Scott Eunson – to help produce the pieces in Toronto. The resulting set is as cross-cultural as it is comely.

The shape of the pot was inspired by a 1960s, Italian TV character named Carmencita, and the simple tray is made from the most iconically Canadian wood: maple.
