How could NH (as he always signed his post-its) not be my design hero?!
He taught me so much- from the provenance of landmark buildings in London, how to pronounce ‘Cadogan’ and of course never to leave the office without a tape measure or my address book, having once been expelled from the car on the King’s Road for that sin. He taught me which furniture layouts just work and what rules to break and when.
And he encouraged me not to be boring.
