Leading designer Johnny Grey is to present his take on the multigenerational kitchen, in a keynote address to the hybrid event Hettich Xperiencedays, which takes place tomorrow, 11th May.
In his presentation, Everything All The Time: Multigenerational Kitchen Living, kitchen design expert Grey, pictured, will discuss the kitchen’s journey from 19th-century drudgery to a future where multigenerational kitchen spaces work sociably for everyone, of any ability or age. He will talk about the research undertaken by the National Innovation Centre for Ageing (NICA) and what people want from a multigenerational kitchen. He will also consider time spent in the kitchen, happiness levels, and the roles of wellbeing and biophilic design.
Grey will present practical ideas based on ergonomics, soft geometry, behavioural prompts, plus a debate on peninsulas versus islands, the development of smart technology and post-COVID kitchen consumer behaviour.
“We are delighted to have such a respected and admired designer as Johnny Grey join us on Hettich Xperiencedays,” said Hettich UK marketing manager Colin Patterson. "Johnny will make a great contribution to what has already been a fascinating journey, adding his take on accessibility and inclusivity to the story so far.”
