Christopher Jenner is a designer and founder of a multi-disciplinary studio based in London. He partners with brands, manufacturers and craftspeople around the world, using design to communicate brand values and tell stories that capture the imagination.
Christopher has a diverse cultural background having grown up and studied in South Africa, then lived in Paris, Tel Aviv and Hong Kong before settling in London and opening his studio in 2010. His nomadic experience stoked his interest in the symbiotic relationship between design and story-telling, bringing an individuality to projects in vision, approach and style.
Whether redefining a global luxury brand, collaborating with an established manufacturer or exploring innovation with a historic workshop, the belief is the same: telling brand stories creates meaningful experiences that connect consumers with design and add value to life.
Collaborating with brands, manufacturers and workshops across industry and scale, Studio output spans retail, hospitality and transport design, industrial design, furniture, lighting, product design and craft. Previous projects have included interior retail concepts for luxury brands; creative direction and experiential design for Eurostar; collectible designs exhibited and sold in some of the world’s most established galleries and a series of one-off designs and collections in collaboration with heritage craft workshops around the world.
Christopher’s unique design philosophy is brought to life in the Studio where his knowledge and understanding of brands, processes and materials develop through an ongoing journey of experimentation and innovation.
The fundamental vision underpinning of each design project is that it should transcend fashion and trend and instead capture the fundamentals of human nature and behaviour, appealing to the universal desires for culture, discovery, intrigue and charm. With a conscious and responsible approach to design, Christopher Jenner delivers commercially successful work that is relevant, engaging and has inherent meaning.
Christopher Jenner is also Creative Director of the Gestalt lighting brand which launches in September 2018.
