Terence Conran contributed a lot to British Design. Not only did he spark the public’s interest in design in general, thanks to his flatpack furniture, sold in his own design shop “Habitat”. Conran also lay the groundwork for his successors. In the 70’s, when Margaret Thatcher was education secretary, he urged her to include design in the curriculum of schools. Despite Thatcher’s lack of interest for the matter, she agreed – to Conran’s amazement.
