Destroyers/Builders is a Brussels based design studio, initially founded by Linde Freya Tangelder. With a focus on materiality the studio strives for sensory relevance and cultural value in detail and bigger scale. Their works have a sculptural and architectural character, but are always on the edge of contemporary material use and traditional crafts. The studio takes on projects that range from commissions to self-initiated projects, and extends across the realms of both product and interior design.
A human approach is reflected in the projects of destroyers/builders. Working with a wide range of materials – both high en low valued materials -, new values arise. Based on a method where an interaction between the architectural, sculptural and material can be seen, both limited editions and objects and projects in commission from the base of the studio.
