Space design

D&C is an interior design firm established by Megumi Takahashi.


D&C is a Sapporo based design firm. Working in Sapporo, the capital of Japan's most northern province, Hokkaido, has allowed us ways to provide a more personal experience for our clients. In Tokyo, the center of Japan’s design industry, projects would be worked on by many people in one design studio, each with their own take, style and goals. In Sapporo a designer must be more flexible. Personally responsible for all aspects of the project, and thus more personally involved in all our projects, no matter the size.

This deeper involvement comes with its own challenges and experiences, which we believe makes us, as individuals, more creative and better designers.

In Japan, as possibly most of the world, most design trends are set by women, be it fashion, goods or popularity of shops or restaurants. Yet most commonly the principal business owners are men. At D&C we want to help bridge the gap between the business owner (whether a restaurant chain or small shop) and the trend setting market of women.

The concept of "Kawaii♪" is very significant to the Japanese trendsetter. It is the equivalent of the English "cute", "stylish", "cozy", "elegant" and even "sexy" all rolled in to one. We believe that being women designers, we have a closer connection to this concept and can help our clients businesses to communicate it to their clients. By striving to incorporate "Kawaii♪" ideas into our work we feel we can create spaces that will help your project be successful with the trend setting women; providing them a favorite place and you a select clientele for your business.

D&C strives to apply these ideas into all our work. We want to provide our clients the personal and deep involvement with the details that comes with working with an experienced firm. We try to incorporate the natural beauty of Hokkaido combined with the elegant softness and style; that "woman's touch", that will make your projects trendy and appealing to all generations of women, as well as men. Above all, we want to be always flexible for our clients and always provide them with a level of service and quality in our designs beyond their expectations.
