Destroyers/Builders, founded by Linde Freya Tangelder, is a Brussels & Antwerp based design studio. The studio strives for sensory relevance and cultural value in detail and bigger scale. The works have a sculptural and architectural character, but are always on the edge of contemporary material use and traditional crafts. Inspired by architectural shapes, the furniture pieces highlight the field between industry and human, through diverse materials.

The interventions and finishes by hand, give these objects a tactile aspect. The contrast in materials, the touchability, and the human traces that are still visible in the object, explain the method of Destroyers/Builders. The studio takes on projects that range from commissions to self-initiated editions.
