Revival of the accessories room of the Audley House, Mayfair, London,  for James Purdey & Sons.
Purdey is a quintessentially British gunmaker of London. Part of the Richemont group, Purdey supplies high-end bespoke sporting shotguns and rifles to a connoisseur clientele, including the British Royal family. Takagicapéran was approached to remodel the main entrance room which is to welcome the ever extending accessories family, while maintaining the englishness of this exclusive homely club. The accent was put on simplicity of volumes, efficiency of lighting and quality of the fittings.
A striking welcoming to the ‘Purdey Way’ bespoke experience.

Completion : 2017


Japanese Curry House

HIDEN Japanese Curry Lab is a Japanese curry store opened in the foodie hotspot of the Coal Drops Yard at Kings Cross.

TAKAGICAPERAN took a very simple approach to its space design, with the iconic colour of the Japanese curry dish – “yellow”, setting an optimised “Laboratory” kitchen staged in a clean and minimalistic environment. “Hiden” means a secret recipe in Japanese with attention to details and unknown blend of spices. Here, the simplistic yet crafted application of yellow colour throughout the space is integrating all functional aspects of the preparation process, further celebrating the passion of food and the staging of the product. A curry sample gallery to the side wall, from the Japanese art of “Shokuhin Sanpuru”, is the sole indication of the iconic dishes.

The yellow back wall & front counter house the few signages present in the store with magnetic menu letters and neon lighting logo at the top. The side areas share dining counters where customers can enjoy their meal, seating on stools especially designed by TAKAGICAPERAN for Hiden.

Clare V.

Pop up store at Le Bon Marché

“Los Angeles Rive Gauche” is a 2 months exhibition curated by Le Bon Marché which celebrates the thriving culture and lifestyle of the iconic City of Angels. Clare V. was invited as a feature guest to celebrate the laid-back yet crafted L.A. fashion sense. The Clare V. pop-up is situated in a key area on ground floor at the main corner entrance.
Takagicapéran’s approach was to create a joyful yet simple environment to showcase the bold and refined products. Timber and cream plinths allow for collections to be displayed while back wall units were dressed with iconic graphics to further showcase the accessory ranges.
An embossing station provides a bespoke finish to each items which can be personalised on demand.

Japanese Sushi Shop

TAKAGICAPERAN was commissioned to refurbish an independent Japanese sushi deli shop located in North London. The approach was to use plain raised grain pine as a feature material to translate the freshness and craftmenship behind the preparation of the traditional Japanese dish. The warm textured timber units are completed with black magnetic walls and a black feature back wall illustrating the world of Sushi Heads.
