History

Spatial design began for Tanseisha when our founder, Masaji Watanabe first started remodeling the interior of the newly bustling department stores in Ueno, Tokyo after WWII.
For over seventy years since this humble origin, we have continued to hone our skills and creativity, expanding the field of the general display industry through a multitude of achievements such as our pavilion at the Expo ’70 world fair held in Osaka, the turning point of our company’s history.
When we moved our headquarters to Shinagawa, the doorway of Tokyo, we did so with the intention of it being “the gateway to future design,” and we continue to create space for imaginations to grow while drawing power from our ability to read the times.
