Dispatches from Ukrainian Designers

Like all acts of war, this year’s invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces created humanitarian crises on international scales. Architecture and design professionals in Ukraine, along with their friends, families, neighbors and peers, have spent the past few months navigating loss and looking for ways to ensure safer futures. Here, in interviews that have been edited and condensed for clarity, architects and designers tell Interior Design about the state of their offices, their industries, and their homes.
