Michael Young

In a career that spans little more than 18 years, British-born and Hong Kong based designer Michael Young, established himself from the very beginning as one of the world’s leading figures in his trade.

Apart from his endlessly copied designs and its unparalleled power to generate a vibrant but relaxed atmosphere, the uniqueness of his work also resides in his constant questioning of typologies and habits, combined with the pioneering passion for technology that after some time also brought him to Asia, continuously crossing borders and pushing innovation to its very limits in a fresh approach that effortlessly blends east and west, or past and future, while marrying the industry to what is often seen as its very opposite: sheer poetry. “It is design as industrial art that interests me, not in a limited edition, but in mass-production”.
