A major survey of Asia’s next generation of designers, this book features the work of over eighty rising stars from across the region.
The axis of design influence has begun shifting from west to east, and designers in Asia are at the forefront of many burgeoning creative and cultural movements. In Design in Asia, Philip and Suzy Annetta—cofounders of Asia’s premier design and architecture magazine, Design Anthology—have created a compendium of leading young designers working across the region, from Vietnam and Thailand to China and Korea.
Selected design pieces are accompanied by firsthand accounts from each designer, revealing their inspirations, collaborations, and the challenges facing young professionals in the industry. The designers represented here encompass a new generation of—and attitude toward—design. With over 400 pages and 800 color illustrations, this book is a key resource for professionals, enthusiasts, and anyone else interested in Asia’s contemporary design scene.
