Born in Hong Kong in 1965, Douglas Young trained as an architect in Sheffield University and the Architectural Association in UK. Since 1991, Douglas has worked in Hong Kong on projects ranging from residences to retail interiors.
Douglas co-founded G.O.D. with Benjamin Lau in 1996, fulfilling a long-term vision to build a Hong Kong brand that is both forward-looking and proud of its cultural origins. G.O.D. retails contemporary furniture, homeware and lifestyle accessories with a contemporary Chinese twist. Most of the merchandise is designed in-house by a multi-disciplinary design team led by Douglas. To date, G.O.D. has five stores throughout Hong Kong ranging in size from 3,000 square feet to its 20,000 square-foot flagship store.
G.O.D. products are also available in many of the world's department stores, boutiques and museum shops and have attracted extensive media coverage.
