Michael Young is a British-born designer based in Hong Kong. His work has spanned across furniture, interiors, and product design. Young has worked with brands such as Coalesse and Georg Jensen. Museums including the Louvre and Centre Pompidou in Paris have showcased his work.
Michael Young's Lancaster series of tables and chairs for Emeco is available on Rarify. We appreciate Young's choice to design legs that would be crafted by Amish woodworkers in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and to develop die-cast aluminum parts and joinery for the table and chair series. The exceptional attention to detail and manufacturing processes is seen and felt clearly through the end products.
