Bonbonma Architecture is a creative enticing office and hands on research studio working internationally with its headquarters in Kyoto, Japan.
The creative director of the studio is architect, Cecilia Ramirez-Corzo an Architectural Association School of Architecture graduate (London, 2006).
Process and play are at the core of its creations as well as research through making and hands on experimentation.
Sound and silence are the key etheric elements for the overall conception of each project; Every project starts with silence and ends with sound thus creating Tone-Architecture*: Architecture born out of silence and sound, architecture made out of tones: weaving simple rhythms (time) into symphonic materiality (space). A tone lies at the foundation of everything in the physical world; therefore the silent word spoken by our surroundings renders the exterior a union of matter and ether with the interior, a union of form and content. When the tone permeates the content, the form becomes the outward expression and manifestation of the whole, allowing the human being, the dweller of such space to become one with the weaving life forces of the content itself.
Building Biology principles are not just considered but it is an intrinsic part of the thought, design and construction processes. Thus paying special attention to the well being of all the people involved in the discipline, from manufacturers, to constructors to dwellers, as well as the impact that architecture has on the planet.
Bonbonma is always interested in crossovers between disciplines therefore collaboration with other creators, craftsmen, technicians, artists etc. is a must in order to discover, create and build new “tones”, new innovations.

Joon Ahm is a contemporary ceramic design practice born in Kyoto, Japan.
It uses traditional Japanese ceramic techniques and glazes to produce one of a kind pieces.
Joon Ahm focuses on objects of daily use as well as order made pieces and pieces made specifically for art installations. The intrinsic link between the scales of architecture and home (ceramic) utensils is a peculiarity inheritable and permeating Joon Ahm’s creations.
Constant experimentation is a key element when working with natural materials and their chemistry. Joon Ahm conduces a special ongoing research on the very specific characteristic of the sound of ceramics rendered by the different kinds of clays, porcelains, glazes and forms. Two lines of work derive from this process: Haku Yuu which are white porcelain objects born from the sound of porcelain itself and Iro Tori Dori which are a variety of objects each deriving its form from a single or a group of tones (sounds).
