For Linde Freya Tangelder, the founder of destroyers/builders, the ASSEMBLE is a sofa debut. “It was the most complex object I have ever designed. And the largest for that matter. It was challenging to combine my preference for architectural contouring and very tactile materials with rather practical necessities as sitting comfort, foam density and extreme detailing.”

assemble furniture by destroyers/builders
The Assemble sofa designed by destroyers/builders encourages exactly what its name suggests: to assemble your own sofa. The asymmetrical cushions are assembled into different sofa-elements. There are single seaters to choose from, two-seaters, corner elements, poufs and side tables to play around with. This sofa was developed to be neither too firm, nor very soft. “This universal fit was a very important feature in my design process”, says Linde Freya Tangelder, the woman behind destroyers/builders. Form-wise the Assemble was inspired by weathered pebble stones, by ground glass or the remains of a washed little soap. That rounded silhouette of the sofa shares the same language of some of Tangelder’s previous designs.
