Founder of The Conran Shop, designer and restaurateur, Sir Terence Conran is widely regarded as the voice of authority on design in the UK. Inspired by Bauhaus principles and Scandinavian craftsmanship, Conran believes that every designer should have a personal understanding of materials and processes. His inimitable ethos, ideas around taste-making and design philosophy centre around well-designed products and furniture that ease the difficulties of contemporary life; Sir Terence wishes to make designs available that ‘grow old gracefully and slip seamlessly into people’s lives and give them years of pleasure.’

The Conran Shop

Sir Terence’s early career saw him design innovative products and textiles, found the Conran Design Group and open the UK’s first flat-pack furniture manufacturer. His myriad accomplishments made ‘plain, simple, useful’ design accessible and encouraged the expression of personality through interiors. Habitat epitomised this new way of living and by the time the first store opened its doors, the Conran name was synonymous with good design. Sir Terence Conran has also played a monumental role in single-handedly elevating carefully chosen pockets of the capital by spotting property potential and renovating abandoned buildings, transforming them to become The Conran Shop stores and restaurants like Bibendum.

Conran has opened retail stores, founded architectural practices and launched award-winning restaurants across his illustrious career. At the centre of it all is his wish to make functional design and spaces available for all. Most recently, developing his long running Design Museum project – which ensures that there is an exhibition venue in the UK that is entirely devoted to design - Sir Terence opened an impressive new Design Museum in Kensington, marking a self-proclaimed landmark moment in his career. Channeling his versatile creativity into a lifetime in design, Sir Terence Conran has consistently pioneered his ethos that good, accessible design improves the quality of everyday life.

Balance Shelving

Balance Shelving
A distinctive design by Sir Terence Conran for his comprehensive collection, ‘Content’, the Balance Shelving unit is a signature stacked design, reminiscent of traditional brickwork or piled books. Ergonomically designed, the modern silhouette of the Balance Shelving unit offers maximum space for storage and display of books, trinkets and plants, while its streamlined design creates a sculptural presence. Representative of Sir Terence Conran’s ethos of clean-lined, contemporary furniture for relaxed living, Balance Shelving is simple, stylish and completely timeless.
