Ramdane Touhami’s Colourful Tokyo Office with Mediterranean Accents
The founder of Officine Universelle Buly 1803 designed the furniture in his workspace and created a place where he could feel at home.
A colourful office was needed to match a vibrant personality like Ramdane Touhami. This individual who relaunched the candlemaker Cire Trudon and perfume and cosmetics company Officine Universelle Buly 1803 is heavily inspired by the Japanese aesthetic. It was therefore quite natural for him to have a base to suit his character in the Japanese capital.
Situated facing a park and at treetop level, Ramdane Touhami’s Tokyo office reflects his Moroccan roots. The colours are intense and the benches look inviting. The culture of sitting down echoes that seen in Japan, where people often take a seat on the floor. The premises are dotted with little objects collected here and there by the artistic director. He also designed the majority of the furniture, which injects this unique space with all his originality. This haven was an ephemeral one, however, as since Officine Universelle Buly 1803 was bought by LVMH in 2021, the space is now put to other uses.
Since this time, Ramdane Touhami has been dedicating himself to Art Recherche Industrie, a general creative agency he founded.
