Japanese skincare brand DHC wanted to announce its move into the European cosmetics market by opening a new headquarters in Switzerland. To reflect this new chapter in the brand’s history, we created office furniture and display boxes that combined Japanese and Swiss aesthetics.

A good example of our ‘East-meets-West’ concept was our use of the whitest of white paints combined with a high level of contrasts to underline sharp, graphically strong shapes throughout the building. This ‘less is more’ strategy helped create a large unified space and echoed the cleansing and rejuvenating nature of DHC cosmetics.
