A word from our communications czar Mat Riches on Conran stories from around the world;
We’ve had some great press coming in from overseas in the last couple of weeks, promoting our activities in key markets. First of all we had a profile in the Greek magazine, “Euzhn”, a publication priding itself on being a global experience of good taste. Euzhn actually translates as “Easy Living” in Greek, and anyone who has spent any time with Terence will tell you that it is a philosophy very close to his heart.

Of course Conran & Partners have worked in Greece recently, on 180 Pireos – a vibrant new retail centre on Athen’s Pireos Street between the Acropolis and the ancient Port.
In the United Arab Emirates, the excellent journalist and stylist Manisha Harkins spoke to our own Jill Webb and Tris Keech for an article in the National – the largest English speaking newspaper in the region. Manisha was writing a piece called “From High Design to High Street” and discussing how affordable design is reaching the shops faster than ever, another philosophy close to our hearts.

And finally, to coincide with the launch of The Conran Shop in the ABC store in Manhattan, Terence spoke to Dwell magazine, the biggest and best lifestyle publication in the US. We were delighted to be in there and Terence’s interview went very well. I also rather like his portrait shot, taken by one of our favourite snappers, London-born Paul Wetherell.
