Design in Asia explores the art of almost a hundred rising talents of all kinds of design – applied art, furniture, ceramics or lighting. Each artist is introduced in an interview, where they explain their roots and express what is most important for them when they create. This allows us to better understand and appreciate their art presented on the following pages.
The authors of this beautiful album do not focus solely on Japan and South Korea, which is a tendency in Europe. Instead, the book is divided into two parts: North Asia and South Asia. Both are then seperated according to cities. We are able to visit the artists and designers through their cities of residency, and feel the distinctive vibe of each Asian city. Just choose whichever suits you best. Is it Bangkok? Seoul? Manila? Or Hongkong?
