Terence Conran

Terence Conran Terence Conran is one of the world's best-known designers, restaurateurs and retailers. Born in 1931, he founded the Habitat chain of home furnishings stores that revolutionised the UK High Street in the 1960s and 1970s by bringing intelligent, modern design within reach of the general population. Today as Chairman of the Conran Group, which is a thriving architecture and design practice who work on major projects worldwide. A great supporter of design education, Terence founded the Design Museum in London. He has also written more than 50 informative books. His hope is that together these two enterprises have helped to educate and raise awareness of the importance of design in our lives. "People don’t know what they want until you show them", is something Terence Conran has said on more than one occasion. He has lent his eye and design sensibilities to Fermob by designing 'Kintbury', his new range. In some ways it’s hardly a surprising collaboration since, by his own admission, his garden is one of his favourite places, where he comes to relax, dream and find inspiration. "Well-designed furniture is pleasing to look at and comfortable to use, and will give you many years of long-lasting service and pleasure."
