When Sophie Conran, interior designer and daughter of legendary designer and retailer Sir Terence Conran, approached Koto Bolofo (born 1959) in 2012 to document the renovation of the spectacular new premises of London’s Design Museum, he knew he couldn’t say no. Founded in 1989 by Terence Conran and Stephen Bayley, the museum has since become a leading institution devoted to all aspects of design—from architecture and fashion, to industrial, product and graphic design. When Bolofo began photographing the location in 2012, it was a derelict shell, which over four years has now been transformed by John Pawson and his design team. Bolofo found his vision by conceiving of the building as a “feminine object” and focusing on its suggestive curves and forms.

In My Life in Design, Terence Conran tells the story of the Conran brand from the founding of the Conran Design Studio sixty years ago to the creation of the Design Museum, now moving to a dazzling new space on High Street Kensington in November this year. Extensively illustrated chapters consider the many areas where Terence and his design team have made a lasting impact on the way we live our lives, including the founding of Habitat, which introduced good, affordable homeware to the high street, his restaurants, which brought Britain out of the culinary dark ages to discover the joys of eating out and his talent for rescuing and regenerating abandoned buildings and bringing them back into exciting new use. My Life in Design is illustrated with more than 400 images - many from private collections that have not been published before. The book is introduced by internationally renowned designer, Thomas Heatherwick, who identifies his mentor Terence Conran as 'a modernist who, together with a tiny handful of others, gave us a new vision of Britain and ourselves.' Now in his eighties and still designing beautiful homeware and opening buzzy, welcoming restaurants, Terence reveals the secrets and stories of this transformation of British design. Gloriously lively, opinionated and visually stimulating, this is the only book to tell the story of Terence Conran's remarkable career in his own words. Terence Conran: My Life in Design is published in time for the opening of the Design Museum at its new home in a world-class building. It will appeal to designers, students and all those who have grown up with the work of the multi-talented Sir Terence Conran.
