ABOUT

Takagicapéran is a UK & JAPAN based design studio founded by Jun Takagi & Nicolas Capéran. Our work involves interior, architecture & furniture design for luxury and premium labels.

Over 20 years of experience have allowed us to fully master all the aspects of our disciplines: from ergonomics, clever detailing and refined material specifications, to space and light compositions for architectural projects, should they be retail, hotel or leisure interiors.

As designers we believe that the story in the vision of a space is key: translate a brand’s or space DNA as an experience through modern discovery, refinement, surprises and creativity, for a memorable and efficient environment.
