Interview with Ivan Yunakov, CEO and Head Architect of Yunakov Design:
To be in love with our work is always the key to achieve better results. Are you in love with this job? What do you love most about being an interior designer?
I can assure you, that when you love what you do you automatically do what you love, and in this stay, you can achieve really high tops. First of all, I’m an architect – the person who’s the creator, executor, manager, and the biggest self-judge – interior design is only one of the many aspects of my work.
Which is your favorite project from your interior design portfolio?
First of all, I’m always in touch with my colleagues, not only in Ukraine but also from all around the world. Every self-respecting specialist should be aware of their colleague’s’ work. Also, nowadays there are a lot of architecture sites and apps like Pinterest. And the most enjoyable way is traveling. When you can see and fell the atmosphere in its original surroundings.

How would you describe your interior design portfolio style? Do you have any kind of “signatures” that may help to identify your design projects?
I’d call it – functional eclecticism. I like to mix materials and textures, but at the same time, I never choose the beauty instead of functionality. Because on of the main pruposes of architecture is to create convenient and comfortable space for life. And nowadays architects are creating for the sake of creation, forgetting that they work for human beings.
If you had to pick any design projects around the world that you wished it had been made by you, which one(s) would it be?
If I were lucky to choose any project, I would have worked on the Museum of Modern Art or some kind of cultural center. Also, I’d like to design and develop social design projects. I would like to have the opportunity to choose any country and build their schools, hospitals, and development centers. I would be happy to deal with this if I had access to permanent founding.
