destroyers/builders is the Brussels based design studio founded by Linde Freya Tangelder in 2015. As the name suggests, Linde Freya destroys design to rebuild her own visual language. By zooming in on basic architectural shapes and materials, and translating them into minimalist designs, she gives overlooked objects the attention they deserve. The result of that research can be a unique object close to artwork, a limited series of designs or an industrial product. Whatever the material and the functionality of the piece demand. Linde Freya Tangelder is one of the founders of Belgium’s highly appraised Brut collective. Early 2019 Brut received the Henry van de Velde Award for Young Talent, the most prestigious Belgian design prize. Since 2019 destroyers/builders has also been a part of the FAR collection. Far is a project by Studio Vedèt, commissioned by the renowned Nilufar Gallery and Depot in Milan.
