Port Baku, Baku, Azerbaijan


Bespoke granite planters were commissioned from IOTA for Port Baku, an exclusive new designer shopping mall set to become the new lifestyle destination for consumers across the Caucasus region.

A total of 66 large bespoke planters were supplied for this project, comprising 1200mm cubes, and high troughs of dimension L 1200 x W 400 x H 1000mm. All planters were manufactured from 25mm thick polished grey granite; and the 1200mm cube tree planters included stainless steel eye bolts in the base of each planter (to assist installation, and which also served as attachment points for a tree anchoring system).

In addition to the manufacture in its factory in China, IOTA also arranged direct shipment of the consignment to-site in Baku, on all-inclusive DDP [Delivered Duty Paid] basis.

The planters were specified by leading global architects Broadway Malyan, and were commissioned by Mace International on behalf of the mall developers Pasha Construction.

With spectacular views over the Caspian, Port Baku Mall will be a significant expansion of the luxury market in the capital city, doubling the suitable retail space available for the accommodation of the world's most prestigious brands. Many of these have shown early commitment to the project, including Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, Valentino, Burberry, Chloe, Stella McCartney, Bally, Jimmy Choo, Tiffany and others. The mall is scheduled to open in Spring 2014.
