Design Anthology is Asia’s new quarterly magazine for interior design and more
As an independent publisher, we have created the type of design magazine we want to read — cleaner looking than other design magazines, more focussed in its editorial, and much more sophisticated in its tone. We want to provide a reading experience that will transport you and inspire you.
Each issue features quality writing by an international team on art, interiors, design, architecture and travel, and you’ll quickly see we place great importance on the quality and size of the photographs we publish.
Our team brings you into the homes of aesthetes worldwide, behind the scenes at the best industry events, and up to date with the latest products and projects around the world.
We see Design Anthology as 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.
printed in Hong Kong on FSC-certified paper, and available on newsstands internationally, Design Anthology is a magazine for design connoisseurs, sybarites and bon vivants.

We speak to Axel and Boris Vervoordt about why they chose Hong Kong as the location of their latest outpost, we take a look at London’s ever changing skyline, and we travel to Bangkok to bring you the best of one of Asia’s most creative cities.
