Designers react to the Ukraine invasion in today's Dezeen Agenda newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Agenda newsletter features Ukrainian architects and designers, who told Dezeen how they had shut studios, paused projects and sought shelter in the wake of Russia's invasion.

Among the people that spoke to Dezeen was interior designer Katerina Kovalenko who said "every Ukrainian soul is fighting now".

Kovalenko, who is currently in the city of Kryvyi Rih in central Ukraine, told us she was prepared to "run to the bomb shelter at any second".
