Christopher Jenner has revealed his latest project in all its glory. Penhaligon’s, Regent Street, London boasts a beautiful combination of architectural heritage and signature eccentricity, all perched within a street setting that is famous for its Beaux Arts style.
Jenner has created a dramatised concept of British history within the space, looking at the British love of eccentric aesthetic values and craft and marrying it with high-tech manufacturing in the areas that dictate the need for it, such as the patterns and textures of the materials used.
A hybrid of classic and contemporary, Jenner has used a fusion of Edwardian splendor and Japanese Manga to fantastic effect, with the Penhaligon’s colour theme running seamlessly through the space.
The 50m2 space boasts bespoke linen touch wallpaper, four angle white oak marquetry, padded walls with brass buttoning, a sandblasted antique mirror and laser etched brass fretwork. The furniture comprises of a gloss candy stick table, padded stools, a recondiotioned Edwardian desk with mirror backing and a white oak and laser cut brass island console with LED under-lighting. The signage is English gold leaf.
