NACRE, is a modular series of outdoor furniture pairing cutting edge technology with local history. A collaboration between London-based designers HagenHinderdael and Dubai-based 3D-printed concrete specialists Concreative, it has now been adapted to serve as planters for outdoor landscaping as well.
Available as a mix-and-match series of three forms : Step, Stool, and Table – the modular planters can be arranged in varying configurations.
The shape itself is constructed of hexagonal platelets that interlock, rotate, and penetrate. Together creating a structure of extraordinary strength and flexibility, that resembles the structure of the mother of pearl and speaks to the heart of Dubai’s pearl trade.
