Within the works of Destroyers/Builders an interaction between the furniture pieces exist in an overarching inspiration; found in architectural elements, materials or building techniques.
The works of Linde Freya Tangelder, founder of the studio, highlight the field between industry and human, through diverse materials. Both low- and high-end materials get revalued, reconsidered and transformed. The interventions and finishes by hand, give these architectural objects a tactile aspect. Destroyers/Builders takes on projects that range from commissions to self-initiated projects, and extends across the realms of both architectural furniture and interior projects. The practice is founded in 2014 and Antwerp & Brussels based.
Linde Freya Tangelder is also of BRUT collective – a practice of 5 Belgian designers with a focus on collective installations and scenography. BRUT emphasizes the personal idiosyncrasies into a dialogue, materialized through scenography and installations.
