SCAA member, illy, has been a key player in bringing the world of coffee and art together. They’ve worked with artists such as Jeff Koons, Marina Abramovic, Julian Schnabel, the late Robert Rauschenberg , and James Rosenquist to create a brand that is both delicious, aesthetically pleasing, and environmentally conscious.
Barney’s creative director, Simon Doonan, describes Miss illy saying:
“Think of Miss Illy as the ultimate exercise in creative recycling. One look, and you see she’s quite the contemporary gal, so her recycled content goes right along with her modernity. Her very idea and life quite literally sprang from others before her. So while this is great fun, with art, with coffee, we are serious about the multi-use message, about sustainability, as has been illy, long before it came into fashion.”
