Koncrete is a remarkable blend of functionality and elegance created by the imaginative team of shell+core, an interior design studio based in the UAE. Koncrete stands out in Dubai, offering a unique blend of coffee sanctuary, concept store, and creative space. Jade Daniel and Ghalia Korban founded shell+core in 2018, and it quickly became a beacon of originality in the lively Middle Eastern landscape. Covered in bold concrete with elegant black accents, Koncrete creates a luxury rawness that sets the stage for an unforgettable experience.

Within Koncrete, aesthetics and practicality blend effortlessly, creating an environment that adapts to the requirements of its users. From the layout of the furniture to the placement of decorative elements, each feature serves a dual purpose, blurring the lines between form and function. Effectively built tables and chairs flow easily into outstanding store displays, demonstrating the versatility that has become central to shell+core's design philosophy.

Koncrete boasts abundant natural light streaming through its extended windows and lofty atrium, seamlessly blending the distinction between its indoor and outdoor spaces. Complemented by reflective surfaces that enhance the interplay of light and texture, the design by shell+core creates a dynamic and inviting atmosphere.
