Maybe it’s just me, but I can never seem to get past thinking of chain links as part of a fence. The Michael Young ‘Zipte Link’ collection, however, takes the link concept and infuses it into furniture, creating a collection that offers an interesting, futuristic vibe—even I can appreciate this.

The Michael Young ‘Zipte Link’ furniture will be exhibited as part of Vienna Design Week, in which the Hong Kong-based British designer will showcase a collection of pieces crafted of modular aluminum parts. "Each element consists of an extruded bar with two kinks and a cross-shaped section," describes Dezeen. "These can be joined with metal components to make bases for glass table tops or room dividers." Stats for Linktastic Furnishings Trending: Older & Chilly
