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.
HORN VARIATION I & II
As being intrigued by horn – a material that became a grievous and actual subject – the aim emerged to honor the horn, without touching but only by watching and exploring the beautiful color variations that can be found. Applied in many painted layers by designers’ hand – a fake horn effect is formed, which varies from multiple color ranges.
