This week’s #throwbackthursday is in celebration of the fantastic Johnny Grey winning the Services to Industry Award at the 2016 Design Kitchen & Bathroom Awards.
Considered by many industry professionals to be the benchmark of special planning and kitchen design, the Services to Industry Award was given to Johnny Grey in light of his contributions to the Foundation Degree in Kitchen Design at Bucks New University.
In addition to his degree work, Grey was also granted this award due to his work with other kitchen industry stalwarts such as Craig Matson of Roundhouse Design and David Gilletts and David Sanders from Blum. Together the team successfully set up The Kitchen Education Trust to help fund students and research within interior design.
“When we started our degree course, people laughed and doubted there was enough justification, interest or content,” Johnny said in his acceptance speech. “Actually, I did too, but no one laughs now. We are in our third year and adding a Bachelor’s degree with a Master’s research degree to follow.”Designer Awards | kb-eye.com/awards/
