Sepanta's Mission

Sepanta is a design house, focusing on conceptualization and realization of buildings, spaces, jewellery and artworks.

Missioned to explore and expand the territory of progressive contemporary design, we desire nothing but to create beauty in the world; whether in the shape of architecture, or jewellery, or furniture or paintings. This is a shared desire among all Sepanta family, and the one that we would like to transfer to our buildings with the help of our clients who share the same aspiration.

Sepanta Architecture offers design services for all aspects of a built-space; from its architectural planning, to its interior design and its loose or integrated furniture. Architecture isn’t merely creation of buildings for us. It is creation of human space, living and working environment, influential and educational forms and art. We take pride and challenge ourselves in each project to deliver something unique that will make a memorable and positive impact on its users in its long life.

A fusion between art and luxury, Sepanta Jewellery fuses avant-garde contemporary designs with ancient motifs and patterns derived from numerous cultures across the world to create its bold collections of fine jewellery. Sepanta Jewellery is a member of National Association of Jewellers in the UK.
