Terence Conran - The Way We Live Now at Design Museum, London

Terence-Conran_-Photographe 
With his collection for M&S, Sir Terence Conran is very much the man of the hour. It also happens to be his 80th birthday soon and the Design Museum has organised an exhibition, The Way We Live Now, to celebrate his impact and influence.

The exhibition traces his career, which has spanned an impressive number of decades and styles, from post-war austerity right up to the present day, taking in the Festival of Britain, Pop Culture and 80s design book along the way. The exhibition includes a collection of Conran’s own pieces from the late 1940s and 1950s, when he was welding steel chairs himself, designing textile designs, ceramics and magazine covers. Another highlight is the Habitat story, which will include the reconstruction of one of the room sets shown in the Habitat catalogues.

The exhibition runs from 14 November to 4 March. For further information, see the Design Museum website.
