Balarinji Managing Director, Ros Moriarty, said, “We are excited to work with a global brand like Nespresso, with its demonstrated commitment to sustainability. We love the opportunity to reflect on what Aboriginal communities have been doing for generations. It’s great to see Nespresso acknowledge these traditional practices and celebrate Indigenous art and culture to drive important messages around sustainability and our Australian cultural identity.

Speaking about the art, Balarinji designer and artist, Toby Bishop said “When developing the concept we wanted to portray a story that talked to Indigenous sustainable practices and used sustainable materials sourced from Country. The composition references people gathering natural materials for weaving and is used alongside the recycled coffee capsules to reinforce the importance of sustainable living.

Through the creative application of upcycled Nespresso coffee capsules combined with traditional Aboriginal weaving, the artwork communicates the Doing is Everything message in each boutique, along with the letter ‘R’ in Sydney to represent the word ‘Recycle’. The capsules were deconstructed, flattened, rolled and shaped to create the artwork in colours of the Australian landscape.
