Suprematist/Constructivist Design
Even Malevich got into the design act. This photograph depicts two teacups painted with suprematist designs. The actual execution of the painting was by two of Malevich's students Ilia Chashnik and Nikolai Suetin. Although the cups are definitely striking, their utility is somewhat questionable, and it is unlikely that the designs would have been to the liking of the average Soviet coal-miner. Perhaps not surprisingly, such china was never mass produced.
