According to the dictionary, the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;designerâ&#x20AC;? means â&#x20AC;&#x153;a person who specializes in designingâ&#x20AC;?. Today, designers not only do their design jobs, but they also set styles and trends so that people can follow. With accumulated experiences and continuous study, their works have become fashion icon and lifestyle gadget. So, designers are not someone who just work on designing but also a trend setter nowadays. This issue of 8HOURS takes you to the insight roles of designers, how they rule and lead society -- just like Stefan Sagmeister, graphic designer who created a remarkable chair that looks like a big, thick pad in In Focus column. Besides, a creator behind the success of Dusit International, Neera Ratchaiyaboon, has revealed secrets of each hotelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different design identity under Dusitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s umbrella in Possibility. We also bring you to the new Bangchakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ofďŹ ce with a modern look designed by Thailandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading architecture and interior design ďŹ rm called Space Matrix in the column My Space+My Design. Not all...You can ďŹ nd a lot more about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on around the design world in this 8HOURS volume 12 in your hand. We all at ROCKWORTH hope this magazine will help support Thailandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s design industry to reach the international level in the future. Lastly, we wish you enjoy reading 8HOURS -- just like we enjoy writing it. See you next issue!
