SINGAPORE, 03 June 2013 – Heart Media, Southeast Asia’s leading luxury magazine publisher, today announced the revamp of FORM, a leading design and architecture bimonthly.

The revamp introduces a new magazine architecture with new sections on the arts, technology and lifestyle. Meanwhile, existing coverage of interior design and architecture will be further enhanced with improved photography and art direction. 

Supporting the new architecture is a clean, modern and timeless layout that that ensures easy navigation and provides a stylish, unobtrusive environment for art, design and architecture.
