Sir Terence Conran
Sir Terence Conran is one of the world’s best-known designers, restauranteurs and retailers. Born in 1931, he founded the Habitat chain of stores that brought good, modern design within reach of ordinary Britons. Terence’s early projects included designing the interior of the Princess Flying Boat for the 1951 Festival of Britain, and creating one of the world’s first brand manuals for Harveys of Bristol.
Terence is Chairman of Conran Holdings, an interdisciplinary design practice which started life in 1990 from an apartment in Butlers Wharf. What was once a single studio is now a global product, brand and architectural design business.
