English craftsmanship and bespoke design

Christopher Jenner Ltd as Architects

Christopher Jenner to collaborate with luxury fragrance brand diptyque Paris.


Christopher Jenner will apply his signature ‘fractal analysis” to diptyque Paris marrying it with classic Victorian Architectural and Design heritage to create an interior space inspired by English patterning and French luxury.


Leadenhall Market, that 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 Limestone 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.
