I IN Cofounders Refresh a Cartier Office in Tokyo
The thirtysomething cofounders of Tokyo firm I IN strive for work that “creates a long-lasting memory.” They accomplished that goal in the renovation of a Cartier office located in the city’s Hanzomon area. The supremely pared-down but luxe palette is dominated by two colors, champagne and, naturally, Cartier red. The combination is most impactful in the project’s jewel of a circular lounge, its perimeter defined by a ring of golden louvers, its interior outfitted with scarlet sofas and a rug in gradating ochre tones. Paying homage to Japanese aesthetics is another lounge: a raised tatami-mat space with unique red mats where employees can take off their shoes, relax, and decompress. An original abstract artwork of scattered gold leaf on the wall in reception not only welcomes guests with contemporary majestic flair but also nods to Cartier’s principles of artisanal craft and innovation.
