RETAIL AND LEISURE INTERIORS AWARDS 2012
ANNOUNCING THE JURY PANEL

As part of the world's largest architectural awards programme, the WAN Retail and Leisure Interiors Awards 2012 celebrates the most innovative and creative interior design solutions in the following four categories: Retail Outlets and Centres, Arts and Leisure, Hotels, Restaurants and Bars.

Chosen for their unique insight and extensive knowledge, our judges will reward the designs that most successfully balance elegance with intelligence, aesthetic rigour with ergonomic integrity, and efficiency with innovation.

This year's jury panel includes:

Christopher Jenner - Designer
Christopher Jenner established his studio in 2010 to explore the relationship between branding and design. Born in Cape Town, Jenner studied at the Boston School of Design, and lived in Paris, Tel Aviv and Hong Kong before settling in London where he collaborated with luxury brands such as Swarovski and Johnnie Walker. Jenner's designs implement his concept of 'fractal discovery', a process whereby a challenge is deconstructed into multiple elements representing the inherent values (heritage, product, strategy) of a project. With the acclaimed launch of the Swell collection at the Salone del Mobile, Milan in 2012, Jenner embarked on a new chapter designing capsule collections.
