Interior Design Program Meet and Greet with Suzy Annetta
Suzy Annetta is the founder and chief editor of Design Anthology. “Design Anthology is theDesign Anthology is Asia’s new quarterly magazine for interior design and more. 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.”
It was a great pleasure for the Interior Design and Digital Media Design students to have her at LaSalle College Jakarta and to hear her story about why she created the Design Anthology. It was interesting that she was the head of interior designer at her own design studio, Studio Annetta for 4 years before she started the Design Anthology Magazine in 2014 in Hongkong. After that, she uses to travel around Asia and the world, finding many designers and great designs.
One important note is that she mentioned that Asian Design is now at the same level with the westerns countries. It is shown on all the covers and the content of the magazine. That we could not differentiate who is the designer and where she/he came from, but once you read the magazine we could understand that there is a special feature in each issue about Asia.
Moreover, she shared that originality could come from many inspirations, it is not necessarily to always see the interior design to get inspired, you could see all other aspects, architecture, fashion, lifestyle, culture, and many more.
She also stated that travelling is important for designer, but you should have the ability to observe, to see the culture of one place, it does not only go to a nice restaurant but you could also visit other local attractions for example museums, national galleries, historical buildings and many more.
Hope we could have her at another time here at LaSalle College Jakarta.
