Founded in Tokyo in 1997 with the launch of the e-commerce marketplace Ichiba, Rakuten is now one of the world’s leading internet service companies, with a transformative presence in e-commerce, digital content and FinTech. In Europe, Rakuten has been active for more than a decade and has been constantly expanding its footprint to more than 14 different services. With the company’s growing presence in the UK, it became evident that Rakuten had outgrown their previous London office and it was time to relocate to a new state-of-the-art office in the heart of the City. The brief was to provide a flexible and collaborative workspace which fits an excess of 100 people with ample event space and meeting rooms.
