Michael Young

Acre Chair

Michael Young is a British industrial designer and creative director based in Hong Kong. His designs include products, furniture, and interior design with studios based in Brussels and Hong Kong.

His vibrant career spans a diverse range of objects—from headphones and suitcases to bicycles and an electric car. His work has been exhibited at the Louvre in Paris, Design Museum in London, and with solo exhibitions in Kyoto, Miami, Hong Kong, Milan, Paris, and Belgium.

Michael has collaborated with Città to design the Acre chair. The design was awarded a Gold Pin at the 2021 Best Design Awards.

“The design is a quirky classic with an emphasis on quality ergonomics. A good product is not always defined by reinventing the wheel, but by redefining modern technology and processes.”
