Conran's designs "don't quite communicate the
fun he has got out of life"- The Guardian


Dezeen Wire:
in his latest article for The Guardian, architecture and design critic Rowan Moore interviews Terence Conran ahead of an exhibition dedicated to his career at the Design Museum, which opens on 16 November.

In the article Moore suggest that Conran's greatest successes have been the businesses he's founded rather than the products or interiors he's designed, which Moore adds are "a little too managed, manipulated, packaged and don't quite communicate the fun he has got out of life, as if constrained by some invisible boundary."
