A breath of fresh air.
This year, we’ve been giving the studio identity a facelift and launched our new website and studio name cards in May. In fact, this very book is a reflection of some of the new graphic initiatives from Michael Young Studio.
Highlights of al(l) Exhibition.
Grand Hornu – Brussels, Belgium. Feb – May 2016
Al(l) was a four-month long exhibition in Belgium’s premier design museum, The Grand Hornu. It was a reflection of our passion to experiment, explore, and ultimately exploit material properties, in this case aluminium. Showcasing 12 of the studio’s most successful projects in aluminium, each focused on a different production process, from the extruded Dub lights for eoq (below) to the hydroformed and welded bike frames for Giant (below right). The exhibition was a thorough view of the studio’s ten years in Sheung Wan through the lens of a single material.
This was a big effort, thanks to all involved. Particularly Curator, Maria Cristina Didero and Marie Pok for puling all the strings from Italy and Belgium respectivly. The whole team at GH, and all our clients who contributed pieces to a milestone exhibition.
