Christopher Jenner has been tasked with recreating his signature ‘fractal analysis” to diptyque Paris, the London store, marrying it with classic Victorian Architectural and Design heritage to create an interior space inspired by English patterning and French luxury.
Leadenhall Market, the solitary Victorian Architectural gem at the centre of the City of London, will play host to this handcrafted illustration of provenance, skill and storytelling.
Oversized library cabinets shooting skyward are furnished with multi- layered classic mouldings and fitted with secret cupboards in English brass, stained-glass fretwork and magical antique mirror.
Handmade furniture in walnut and turned brass complement bespoke Gothic revival wallpapers, while acid etched brass ‘journey’ panels frame a classic Victorian pressed ceiling from which a huge defused halo is suspended above a Dorset Basalt floor.
Designed to complement rather than impose, the space is a focus on artistic inclusion and cultural assimilation, reflecting a respect of history and culture; a concept at the heart of the studio and the brand.
Born in Cape Town South Africa, British designer Christopher Jenner established his studio at the end of 2010. Christopher designs through words to capture the ‘truth’ of a brand. Implementing a concept of ‘fractal discovery’ to deconstruct and analyse the inherent values of a project, reassembling the assets via propositions to create layered, emotively magical solutions.
The store is due to open in September 2012.
