Collaborating with acclaimed Designers

Michael Young was born in 1966 in Sunderland and graduated from Kingston University in 1992. The following year, he founded the Michael Young Studio with the aim of providing exclusive, quality design services across an eclectic range of markets – from interiors to technology.

Michael’s works have been collected by the Louvre Palace and Pompidou Centre in France, the Die Neue Sammlung Gallery in Germany and the London Design Museum.
