Anthony Gray
Co-Founder & Product Specialist,
ANN Future Workplaces

Ant has almost two decades of experience in the interiors industry, working in the UK and Sydney, Australia. He has been passionately promoting sustainable and responsible products for most of that time. Occasionally, this has meant turning his back on projects that don't truly represent the planet's best interests.

Ant is driven equally by a love for excellent design and his excitement for the creativity and innovation erupting out of pioneers in the industry seeking better solutions, whether transforming trash into stunning new products or discovering methods to remove waste from production processes.

Ant founded ANN Future Workplaces in 2020 to make sustainable interiors and furniture acquisition a new normal for business in the UK. From supplying responsible products to customising entire workplace interior projects, ANN is a hands-on ready-to-take-risks consultancy here to help you make a difference.
