ZENS Lifestyle collaborates with Michael Young

March 12, 2018

(US) – ZENS Lifestyle collaborates with lighting brand Michael Young, bringing the Hong Kong- based designer’s lighting stateside.

ZENS Lifestyle products are deeply rooted in unique design that curates a symbolic bridge between the traditions and culture of ancient China, married seamlessly with the forward progression of the modern world. Michael Young’s lighting collection adds a minimalist design, suitable for residential, workplace and hospitality spaces.

Inspired by the sunlight that emerges through the trees in a bamboo forest, Michael Young continues to play with natural materials for the new lighting collection, aptly named Bamboo Lamps. The bamboo for each light is carefully selected for its shape and color from the Jian forest in Eastern China. The bamboo is then treated in order to maintain its natural hue before being paired with lighting components. Pink, white, or gray domed lamp shades created in either hand-blown glass or traditional Chinese handmade paper top the bamboo poles. Both of the lamp shade styles provide warm, natural light, complementing the organic finishes of the bamboo.

“We are excited to share our enthusiasm for modern, statement-making Asian heritage-inspired designs for the home, office, or hospitality space in the U.S. market,” said Elaine Cai, General Manager of ZENS International. “Our range of products, well-known internationally, has historically focused on teaware and tabletop goods. We are thrilled to continue expanding on that offering and also introduce new collections in furniture and lighting.”
