100 years of Michelin House

Michelin poster

If you are London based, you may want to check out some of the events designed to celebrated 100 years of Michelin House

This distinctive building, on the corner of Fulham Road, was commissioned by the Michelin company as their first British HQ. They moved out in 1985 when it was bought by Terence Conran and Paul Hamlyn. The building now hosts the Conran Shop as well as the Bibendum oyster bar and remains as architecturally interesting as ever, decorated with stained glass, ornate tiles and combining a curious mixture of Art Nouveau and Art Deco influences. 

Currently the front of the shop and a small display is devoted to the building's history, including some archive photographs and original advertising posters. As part of the celebrations, six of these iconic pieces of Michelin advertising, selected from their historic archive, have been re-issued by the Conran Shop on canvas - including the distinctive design above. 

Unfortunately the prints are currently available in store only but prices start at £99 for a 72 x 52cm print. 

Find out more about the prints and other instore events online.
