The Conran Effect

Enjoy a free display in memory of the life and work of acclaimed British designer Sir Terence Conran.

What to expect

Through a series of parallel careers, Sir Terence Conran had a greater impact than any other designer of his era, revolutionising everyday life in contemporary Britain. He changed the way we eat, shop, and live today.

Opening on what would have been Conran’s 90th birthday, the Design Museum celebrates the memory of its founder with this look back at his extraordinary achievements, featuring early furniture designs, his influential restaurants and the establishment of Habitat.
