Design Anthology 25 – The Summer Issue

Design Anthology 25 – The Summer Issue | This special issue is packed to the brim with breezy homes from Bangkok to Bali, stories exploring the built environment across Asia and beyond and introductions to pioneering designers and makers working throughout the region today.

‘In case you hadn’t noticed, we’re living in the future. Remember those post-apocalyptic movies we (of my generation) watched as children; the ones about a global pandemic or some kind of environmental disaster? Well, that’s what it feels like we’re experiencing (minus the zombies). Late last year, during the height of the protests here in Hong Kong, I actually remarked — rather foolishly, in hindsight — that our generation is lucky because we’ve never experienced great hardship. I was wrong. We may not have lived through a global war or economic depression, but this is the first time in most of our memories that we’ve been so indiscriminately and globally impacted.

I know that many people around the world are still coming to grips with the ‘new normal’ and are grappling with the widespread effects of the COVID-19 outbreak. So, it may seem insensitive of us to be publishing what’s normally our favourite issue of the year, but we always look forward to the Summer Issue for its collection of homes in tropical climes and its wanderlust-inducing locations. And since none of us will be travelling any time soon, we felt we could all do with a break from looking at the same four walls of our homes and enjoy for a moment the fantasy that armchair travel provides.

Aside from the welcome distraction we hope this issue presents, our aim remains to showcase and celebrate the immense talent working in this part of the world. The design industry has taken a severe knock over the last few months, and we hope that when some semblance of normality resumes, those of you who have the means to engage an architect or interior designer, or to buy new furniture or accessories for your home, will consider spending locally. Invest in design, in quality and in individuals and small studios that consistently pour their heart and soul into whatever they design or produce — the world would be a rather boring and unappealing place without them.

Stay healthy and well.’
