AL(L) Projects in Aluminium By Michael Young
Exhibition, CID – Site du Grand-Hornu, Hornu, Belgium.
Experimenting is a working method for Michael Young, and the investigation of different resources is his ultimate passion. Born in Britain, the designer has set up offices in Brussels and Hong Kong. In Asia, he has been testing the most advanced and sophisticated processes for more than ten years now, focusing on various types of material. However, his aluminium projects particularly stand out for their uniqueness of approach and the special twist they possess. Selected by Young and presented alongside his own creations, is a series of iconic projects realised by design pioneers and by his contemporaries, all of which utilise aluminium in a distinctive way.
