Design Anthology Issue 13
Design Anthology is Asia’s new quarterly magazine for interior design, art, architecture and travel. As an independent publisher, they have created the type of design magazine they want to read — cleaner looking than other design magazines, more focussed in its editorial, and much more sophisticated in its tone in an effort to provide a reading experience that will transport and inspire you. The magazine aims to be a celebration of the burgeoning creative and cultural scene in Asia. Making up more than half of the world’s population, this is an important place. Design Anthology is a magazine for design connoisseurs, sybarites and bon vivants.
Each issue features quality writing by an international team on art, interiors, design, architecture and travel, with a great focus on the photography.
