Powerlist Creative 30 : Joakimde Rham Founder Swiss Bureau Interior Design
Swiss Bureau Interior Design was formed in 2003, by Joakim de Rham. He and his growing team have successfully delivered over 400 creative projects both regionally and internationally in their 18 years of operation in the Middle East.
After a challenging year, Swiss Bureau has proven that human solidarity and creative teamwork are more important than anything else. With this in mind, Joakim has increased his focus on his work family and implemented numerous internal reforms to ensure his team’s well-being. Happier employees elevate creativity, and this is at the forefront of his mission this year.
Swiss Bureau awaits the remarkable completion of a diverse range of inspiring wellness-related projects. These projects include LEED-certified office space for a private Japanese bank, two new co-working offices in Ras Al Khaimah and Dubai, a 20,000sqft government media office in Sharjah, a luxurious workspace and lobby for The Galadari Brothers, and four offices in the iconic ICD Brookfield Tower with one more on the way, marking the firm’s fifth project in the prominent building. The team also expects an increase in the amount of creative design and build projects in the pipeline, which might total up to 200,000sqft.
