Biography

Known for their cartoonish contours and colours, Michael Young’s designs combine a minimalist industrial aesthetic with a distinctly playful sense of humour. Born in Britain but now based in Hong Kong and Brussels, Young has spent over two decades pushing at the boundaries of experimental design, whether working on projects for the likes Cappellini, Magis and The Conran Shop, or taking on high-profile interiors commissions in the Far East.
