Terence Conran: The Way We Live Now

  • 16 Nov 2011 – 4 Mar 2012

The Design Museum marks Sir Terence Conran's 80th birthday with a major exhibition that explores his unique impact on contemporary life in Britain.

The Way We Live Now explores Conran's impact whilst painting a picture of his design approach and inspirations. The exhibition traces his career from postwar austerity through to the new sensibility of the Festival of Britain in the 1950s, birth of the Independent Group with its flare for the avant-garde and the Pop Culture of the 1960s, to the design boom of the 1980s on to the present day.
