A unique collaboration, Crane.tv Curates: One Room, Three Global Names invites the public into the personal world of Crane.tv at The Front Room, St Martins Lane Hotel from Monday 9th January until Monday 30th January. Bringing their stellar achievements to life, Crane.tv Curates: One Room, Three Global Names will evolve each week to showcase a new creative discipline, creating an immersive, interactive installation.

The series, starting with Sir Terence Conran, famed for transforming the look of the British home will be showcasing his most loved work from his retrospective at London’s Design Museum.

Closing the week is digital artist and founder of ‘Universal Everything’ Matt Pyke who will exhibit digital wonders like ultraviolet trees grown out of mathematical formulas and 3D-printed figurines borne from code.
