Project 08

Miral Head Office 

Abu Dhabi

We were commissioned to design an emblem of Dubai that represented the location of the Miral Head Office at Yas Marina and the heritage of Abu Dhabi.  

The tree was conceptualized as an idea with the architect who wanted to use abstract elements of both the Ghaf tree and the Mangrove both of which are native to Abu Dhabi. 

The Ghaf tree is national tree of the UAE and also a symbol of stability and peace.  The mangroves are the lungs of Abu Dhabi and are sanctuary to a range of wildlife. They prevent the erosion of the shoreline and are protected by the UAE government.

We worked with local sculptural artists Lines&Dots to design, fabricate and install this beautiful hybrid tree in the newly renovated flagship Miral Headquarters.
