Celebrating Terence Conran

Following the death of Design Museum and Habitat-founder, Terence Conran, aged 88, we celebrate his wide ranging influence on the museum, hospitality and leisure industries.

In a tribute, his family said: “Terence Conran was a visionary who enjoyed an extraordinary life and career that revolutionised the way we live in Britain.

"A proud patriot, he promoted the best of British design, culture and the arts around the world and at the heart of everything he did was a very simple belief that good design improves the quality of people's lives.”

Conran founded his design practice, the Conran Design Group, in 1956 and in 1964, launched furniture retailer Habitat, taking inspiration from continental Europe to revolutionise home interiors across the UK.

This passion for furniture continued throughout his life, with Conran and his companies becoming a major influence in the design of hotels, restaurants and resorts globally.

In 1980, he set up an architectural practice with Fred Roche called Conran Roche to work on larger scale urban planning projects, including the redevelopment of London's Butler's Wharf into a riverside leisure destination.

Conran Roche evolved into Conran & Partners, architects, interior designers and masterplanners.

The Butler’s Wharf scheme was the location for two of his major restaurants, The Pont de la Tour and The Butler’s Wharf Chop House, as well as the offices of Conran Roche.

DESIGN MUSEUM

Conran also founded the Design Museum – the world's first museum dedicated to design – initially as an exhibition in the V&A Museum, called The Boilerhouse and then in 1989 as part of the Butler's Wharf scheme.

The museum moved to its current location in the former Commonwealth Institute in Kensington in 2016.

A statement released by Conran's family explained that “Founding the Design Museum in London was one of his proudest moments and through its endeavours he remained a relentless champion of the importance of education to young people in the creative industries.”

RESTAURANTSConran also had a huge influence on the hotel and restaurant industry, opening his first restaurant – Soup Kitchen – in 1953 and launching the Conran Restaurants Group in 1991, which operated hotels, bars and restaurants in the UK, Paris, New York and Japan. At the height of his empire, he owned 50 restaurants, with the best known including Bibendum in Chelsea and Quaglino's in St James'.

He sold 49 per cent of the restaurant business in 2006. The company was renamed D&D the following year and Conran sold the remainder of his stake in 2008.

In 2007, Conran Restaurants and D&D, were involved with the design and operation of restaurants in Japan in partnership with Hiromatsu – called Botanic and Iconic.

As recently as last year Conran opened the sustainable-focused Wilder, in the basement of his Boundary boutique hotel in London's Shoreditch.

In 2000, he was involved with the transformation of the Great Eastern Hotel, which he part-owned, adding his signature restaurants to the scheme and turning it into a hot destination for London.

WIDER LEISURE WORK

Conran’s work in Japan in the early 2000s included a venture into the spa and wellness market with the completion of the Ark Hills Spa and Roppongi Hills spa, in Tokyo – the latter being part of an 11-hectare development that included a 1,900sq m private members-only spa – as well as spas for the Niki Club Hotels group in Nasu.

His company also worked in the health and fitness market, designing the Glassworks health club and spa in Cambridge, UK in 2002, which expanded into a small chain and continues to trade today.

Conran ventured into the attractions market with work on the Museum of London’s prehistoric gallery in 2002, the Fashion and Textiles Museum in London in 2003 and Swarovski World in Austria in 2004.

TRIBUTESFollowing his death, many designers and architects have paid tribute to Terence Conran.

Thomas Heatherwick, who met Conran while a student at the Royal College of Art and was commissioned by him early in his career to create interior displays for The Conran Shop, said: "I feel so privileged to have had Sir Terence Conran as a mentor and lifelong friend and will miss him greatly.

"For me, he was one of a small handful of amazing people who dragged Great Britain out of the post-second world war gloom and modernised the country, by revolutionising how we think about our homes, the products we buy for them and even the food we eat and how we eat it.

"The unique and undeniably distinctive stamp of Sir Terence Conran changed the way the rest of the world thought about Britain and it changed the way so many of us think about design."

In his tribute, Tim Marlow, director and chief executive of the Design Museum, said:

“Terence Conran was instrumental in the redesigning of post-war Britain and his legacy is huge. He is revered by generations of designers from Mary Quant and David Mellor to Thomas Heatherwick and Jonny Ive. He changed the way we lived and shopped and ate. He also created a great institution – the Design Museum – of which he was justifiably proud and with which he remained fully engaged right to the end of his extraordinary life. It was a privilege and an inspiration to know him.”

Sir Terence Conran died peacefully at his Barton Court home in Berkshire on 12 September 2020.
