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.
Architectural columns are the inspiration in the shapes of Bolder Chair. The layers of the chipboard discs refer to columns of stone. The diversity in white tones, which can often be seen in old columns are translated into the structure of Bolder Chair. The chair – with its playful shapes and nuances of white – balances between sculptural and architectural forms. Bolder Chair is made of chipboard and pressed textile fiber board. The studio embraces the challenge to integrate these industrial and contemporary materials into human and sculptural objects.
