Conran & Partners

  • Comment

Sir Terence Conran is changing the name of his design group to Conran & Partners after the merger of his Conran Studio and cd Partnership.

The name change is meant to clear up confusion surrounding the role and identity of the design element of his business empire. Conran Studio worked on product design, with cd Partnership focusing on architecture, graphics and interior design. A spokeswoman for the group said the merger broadened the design skills of the company, enabling it to offer clients an all- encompassing approach to projects. Sir Terence remains company chairman with Richard Doone and Paul Zara as directors.

The firm is currently working on a restaurant in Manhattan (below) and the Great Eastern Hotel in London's Bishopsgate. The work will restore Victorian architectural features and combine them with modern fittings. The 265-bed hotel is due to open in January 2000.
