In the 90s he founded the Conran Restaurants group that opened iconic restaurants, hotels and bars in London, Paris, New York, Japan and Scandinavia including Quaglino's, Bluebird, Mezzo and Le Pont de la Tour. In 1989 he founded the Design Museum in London, the world's first museum dedicated to design which moved to larger premises in the former Commonwealth Building, Kensington, in 2016.

Throughout his career Terence's companies have designed, owned and operated shops, restaurants, hotels, bars and cafés around the world as well as working across the fields of architecture, interiors, products and graphics. This diverse range of projects have all been driven by Terence's fundamental belief that intelligent design improves the quality of people's lives.

Today Terence designs furniture for Benchmark, Content by Terence Conran and The Conran Shop, and is involved in several restaurants including The Boundary, Lutyens, Albion and Bibendum. He has written over 50 informative books that broadly reflect his design philosophy.

He is an honorary professor of the University of the Creative Arts, and was knighted for his services to design in 1983.
