Rakuten, Inc. is a Japanese electronic commerce and online retailing company based in Tokyo. It was founded in 1997 by Japanese businessman Hiroshi Mikitani. Rakuten took the opportunity to update their office space whilst all staff worked from home. Their offices are located in a distinctive style building in the heart of Belfast City. CCI had the opportunity to use the natural fabric of the building and restored the existing timber flooring bringing it back up to its full glory. The Rakuten team felt they needed an update of more modern furniture and the use of natural light, glass, timber and steel framed industrial partitioning systems within the natural framework of the workplace, CCI were able to blend the new with the old and create a unique work space.
