In 1993 The Conran Foundation Collection was established. Every year a young, design-associated personality would be invited to spend £30,000 (in 1993 money) on “things you'd like to live with” reflecting their personal opinion of what they found most inspiring. Ross Lovegrove became the first guest “collector” and he included items from a special edition camera to coat hangers, and from a Castiglioni sofa to Gillette shaving gel!
The project was to create basic photographic records of the Conran Collection (numbering around 2,000 objects) for the purpose of identification and documentation, rather than publication.
