-
GENERAL CREATIVE AGENCY

Art Recherche Industrie is an art direction agency active in major aesthetic fields (architecture, typography, graphic design, photography, writing, product development, development of brand philosophies, redefinition of identities). It distinguishes itself by an original modus operandi: advocating home-made and zero-outsourcing. The agency works under the direction of Ramdane Touhami.

Art Recherche Industrie – Works

ARI, THE GAME

Fashion, design and art definitely deserved a game! Many will laugh, others… much less. If you’re cool, this game will come to you naturally. If not, we’re so sorry. That’s life, bye bye. Complete design from the box to the banknote. Design Ramdane for Art Recherche Industrie.

AND.A “RELOADED”

Art direction, merchandising, management and press for Tokyo-based chain AND.A for which Ramdane Touhami created a new visual identity and redesigned the interior architecture of the thirteen boutiques. Inspired by the image of a black cube, they contain collections of specially created clothing as well as a selection of eclectic objects (electronic products, furniture, books, jewellery…). Design Ramdane Touhami for Art Recherche Industrie.

OFFICINE UNIVERSELLE BULY

Creation of a corner of the Officine Universelle Buly for the Korean department store Hyundai. Sleek concrete elements are blended with 19th century French aesthetic. Design Ramdane Touhami for Art Recherche Industrie.

OFFICINE UNIVERSELLE BULY

Realized with the co-founder of l’Officine Universelle Buly, Victoire de Taillac, this Atlas of Natural Beauty is an encyclopaedic collection in English language, elegantly illustrated, listing the exceptional beauty secrets, tips and effective recipes for naturally radiant skin. Published by Simon & Schuster and Seghers & Versilio.

OFFICINE UNIVERSELLE BULY

Invention of the bell candle to preserve its fragrance and prevent dust and impurities from depositing on the wax. Exclusively formulated from vegetal components, the candles of the Officine Universelle Buly are free from paraffin and mineral derivatives from petrochemicals. Their cotton wick allows a regular combustion. Available in two marbled colours, the candle stamped with a Buly silver coat-of-arms is a sumptuous and sustainable object that recalls antique vases. Design Ramdane Touhami for Art Recherche Industrie.

OFFICINE UNIVERSELLE BULY

Development of a softening unisex face lotion. This water called “superfine” is enriched with rose floral water. With purifying and toning virtues, it is a detoxifying asset for urban air exposed skins. It is conditioned in a white lacquered bottle, decorated with a basket-handle label, ornamental motifs and embossed coats-of-arms. Design Ramdane Touhami for Art Recherche Industrie.

OFFICINE UNIVERSELLE BULY

The natural products – known as raw – are the very essence of a universal pharmacy. Coming from the world’s richest lands, honeys, butters and plant oils compose the secrets and abroad rituals that have made yesterday’s, have reinforced today’s and will be tomorrow’s beauty. This products selection has obeyed important ethical, fair trade and organic rules. Development of an amber glass bottle to protect these products from the harmful effects of light. Design Ramdane Touhami for Art Recherche Industrie

OFFICINE UNIVERSELLE BULY

This boutique offers a surprising aesthetic experience. Two eras boldly intertwine and extend the retro-futuristic designs of the Officines in Tokyo. Japanese master glassmaker and French cabinetmaker agree on an imposing central cabinet with a baroque line. Design Ramdane Touhami for Art Recherche Industrie.
