Terence Conran exhibit comes to Design Museum

17th November 2011

Culture vultures staying in central London hotels can now enjoy a new exhibit, Terence Conran: The Way We Live Now, running at the Design Museum until March 23rd.

Opened yesterday (November 16th), the exhibition will explore great design trends throughout the ages.

"Discover the impact and inspirations of acclaimed designer Sir Terence Conran at the Design Museum," explained tourism group.

"Terence Conran: The Way We Live Now features Conran's own designs and explores those he admired or commissioned from others."

Visitors can see how Conran's designs influenced domestic life and food through archive material, original design documents, art, models and graphics.

The exhibit focuses on a few themes, including post-war austerity, the new sensibility of the 1951 Festival of Britain, the birth of the Independent Group, the pop explosion of the 1960s, the design boom of the 1980s and the present day.

"Sir Terence Conran is one of the world's best-known designers, as well as a restaurateur and a retailer," added the group.

"In 1956 he founded the Conran Design Studio, and later the influential home furnishings chain Habitat.

"In 2009 Conran opened two unique new venues in London, restaurant-cum-hotel The Boundary in Shoreditch and French restaurant Lutyens on Fleet Street."

Ideally located for some of the top hotels in London, the Design Museum is located around the corner from London Bridge station, along the River Thames.

Visitors can also enjoy fine beers and ales in the local Dean Swift pub, which claims to offer one of the best selections of drinks in the city.
