Called Grand Crus Cup Parade, the pieces are each made of recycled aluminium and styled to resemble Nespresso’s range of capsules in sixteen colours. The designers propose a system where customers return their used capsules for recycling in order to collect points, which they can exchange for the set.
The design was one of three winning entries in a competition entitled Sustain.Ability.Design, sponsored by Vienna Design Week organisers Neigungsgruppe Design and Nespresso Austria.
Dottings was invited to present their idea concerning the theme Nespresso & Sustainability for a Vienna Design Week Exhibition. What was developed is a Vision – from the used Nespresso capsule to a designed Recyclingproduct.
Recycling Aluminium requires just 10% of the energy compared to extraction of new aluminium.
The shape of “Grand Crus Cup Parade” is dedicated to the capsule. In Small, Medium & Large Size, in 16 Nespresso Blend Colours, the cups define perfect size of each coffee. It´s a klind of “guidance system” for Nespresso Coffees Selection.
