Michael Yeung attributes his core concept of furniture as functional art to a professor at his Canadian Art School, where the young student was preparing for his Masters in architecture. Exploration is the key to his design process and Yeung is known for re-thinking conventional expectations of the materials he works with.
Drawing inspiration from the automation and aviation industries Yeung brings an element of the surreal to his designs. Fragmented, spacial geometry and bold fluid forms characterize Yeung’s remarkable designs.
Each piece is designed to be visually appealing from every angle. Much like a sculptor, Yeung designs his furniture with a view of how the light will reflect and how it will cast shadows of the piece in the room, accentuating each curve and line to have the most visual impact. Comfort and functionality is an integral part of every Michael Yeung design, making each piece a functional piece of art.
Michael Yeung currently lives in Hong Kong.
