The Darkest Hour is Just Before Dawn

London Design Biennale
2023
The Ukrainian pavilion at the London Design Biennale is called “The Darkest Hour is Just Before Dawn.” These words combine two key messages from the Ukrainian design community.
Firstly, we would like to show that during times of crisis in Ukraine, designers have learned to skillfully create objects and spaces focused on functionality and the rational use of available materials. We are ready to combine our current knowledge with progressive thinking from around the world, while respecting the planet’s resources. With that being said, we emphasize that we actively seek future collaborations with the peaceful world to unite our creative potentials.
Meanwhile, we would like to remind everyone that our country is rich in natural resources, cultural heritage, and has a creative and progressive community that bravely withstands attempts to destroy our cities and industries. Even in bomb shelters and without electricity, we continue to deliver our products with the highest quality and remain a part of the progressive world.

Strum

2023
This docking station with three power banks is the perfect solution for charging power banks at home, especially in Ukraine where unstable electricity supply and regular power outages have become the norm. 
Nowadays, power banks have become an integral part of our home life, and this product allows you to charge all three power banks simultaneously in one place, without any extra wires and power adapters. 
Additionally, it has a pleasant and minimalist design, making it an ideal fit for any interior.

Mars

2023
MARS is a lightweight aluminum table
 
Table is a piece of furniture that plays an important role in people’s lives. It not only serves as a surface for preparing and consuming food, but also holds symbolic meaning.
 
Due to the fact that humanity plans to settle on other planets, the metal table can retain its symbolic importance even in new locations. That’s why we created a lightweight aluminum table, the parts of which can be assembled into a small box to save space during transportation to other planets.
 
This will preserve the importance of the table as a symbol of unity and cooperation between people in new territories and ensure comfortable living on other planets in the future. Indeed, where there is a table, there is communication, cooperation, and unity among people.
 
Therefore, we must ensure the well-being of people on other planets now, providing them not only with functional things but also with symbols of interaction and cooperation.

TUTO

2022
TUTO – pet houses designed for cats and small dogs.
The design is built on the unique property of plywood becoming flexible when a sufficient number of openings are cut into it. These perforations not only allow for the creative shaping of the plywood but also provide excellent ventilation inside the shelter.
The design of the shelters is meticulously crafted to seamlessly integrate into any interior, offering a stylish and comfortable retreat for your beloved pets
