Habitues of the Sir John Soane Museum have a treat in store from 16 September: a splendid exhibition entitled 'Tea and coffee towers:
Alessi at the Soane'. Co-organised by the Museo Alessi and curated by Alessandro Mendini, the show features what the title says, with designs by 20 international architects including our very own Will Alsop, David Chipperfield, Future Systems, and Zaha Hadid. Beverages have never tasted so? well? designerly.
