Terence Conran : My Life in Design (Hardcover)
about this item
Few individuals in the last century have had such a wide-reaching influence on the way we live our lives than Sir Terence Conran - from how we decorate our homes to our passion for eating out. Now in his eighties and still designing beautiful homeware and opening buzzy, welcoming restaurants, Sir Terence looks back at the Conran brand since he founded the Conran Design Studio sixty years ago and explores the many areas where he and his design team have made an impact.Chapters cover the founding of Habitat, product design, furniture, catalogues and books, housing and hotels, retail and fashion and the creation of the Design Museum. Extensively illustrated with photographs and drawings and with a lively, incisive commentary that reveals the stories behind the designs, Terence Conran: My Life in Design will appeal to designers, students and all those who have grown up with the work of the multi-talented Sir Terence Conran.
