When I watch a pitch for a Masterclass, I sometimes find myself entertaining thoughts about giving up my career, pivoting from whatever I'm doing in my life, and dedicating the next year to study whatever it is this world-renowned expert is talking about.
Ok, so maybe that sounds a bit insane (I haven't done it, have I? At least not yet...), but you have to admit there's an almost gravitational pull you experience when hearing someone completely masterful and engaging talk about their craft. Whether it's Thomas Keller talking cooking, Steve Martin playing his banjo and riffing on comedy, or the guy behind The Tipping Point and Revisionist History telling us how to tell stories, their passion becomes yours for that small moment as they tell you how they go about creating something great.
And I have to say, that’s how I felt the other day hearing Johnny Grey describe how he thinks about design. We got together over Zoom and he walked me through his latest design concepts, called “The Evening Kitchen,” and I was pulled in as Johnny described a kitchen design process that worked to summon all five senses in creating more warm and welcoming environments.
