FATHER OF INVENTION
Michael Young (inset) was born in Britain, but his passion for technology,
inn ovation an d East-West sy nergies l ed him to a n ew base of operatio ns in
Hong Kong. His latest venture, EOQ, is a brand rooted in a spirit of enquiry
an d indu strial adven tu re, while his recycled al uminiu m B ramah lighting series
(inspired by inven to r Joseph Bramah who in 1797 paten ted the fi rst extrusion
pro cess fo r making lead pipe) has j ust laun ched. Each lightshade has over
a 100 ex tru ded fins which distribute shards of light a nd create a n ambient
glow. We sat down to chat about lights and more.
Where did inspiration for the Bramah light come from? I was in a factory
that makes produ cts fo r co oling large gen erato rs an d it was a n immediate
conclusion that this light could be made using the same process.
What makes Bramah different/special? Nothing like this has ever been
made befo re; it’s a fresh pro du ct, a n ew way to make a light.
Who is your target customer for this product? Anyone with good taste!
You’ve been in Hong Kong for a number of years now. What are its
advantages in terms of design/production? Hon g Kon g is ver y fast a nd
very fu rio us. Much energy exists here. It works for me.
What inspires you? Well it sou nds a little silly but I inspire myself. I have
learnt to entertain myself as I travelled a lot in my life, so daily life inspires me!
