ROADS & MARITIME SERVICES NSW
ENTRY WALLPAPER, CORPORATE OFFICES
Roads & Maritime Services (RMS) appointed Balarinji in late 2016 to design, manufacture and install wallpaper on a two level wall at the entry to its new corporate offices in Ennis Road, Milsons Point, Sydney.
Balarinji’s 'Abudji Dance' wallpaper carries the story of women’s dances. Often represented on wooden dance sticks, these patterns depict ceremonial knowledge performed in women’s camps at times of importance like puberty, marriage, childbirth and death.
Adjacent to an internal vertical garden, and responding to a sharp repurposed interior at the eipcentre of the ramp to the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Milson’s Point train station, the design is a contemporary linear work. It picks up the steel greys and subtle ochres of the office’s fitout.
