EOQ (Michael Young) – Brussels Design September 2012


In a career that spans little more than 20 years, British-born and Hong Kong based designer Michael Young established himself from the beginning as one of the world’s leading figures in his trade. The uniqueness of Michael’s work lies in his constant questioning of typologies and habits, combined with the pioneering passion for technology that brought him to Asia. He continuously crosses boundaries and pushes innovation to it’s limits in a fresh approach that effortlessly blends east and west while marrying the industry to what is often seen as it’s very opposite: sheer poetry. ‘It is design as industrial art that interests me, not in a limited edition, but in mass production”.

EOQ is a new brand based in Hong Kong. The brand is rooted in a spirit of enquiry and industrial adventure. Deliberately positioned within easy reach of the new frontier of manufacturing and innovation – we deliver classic design principles using a new and constantly evolving vocabulary.
