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.
The series, realized for Valerie Objects, is made extracting the small and seemingly banal elements of architecture such as bricks, joints and tubes – translated into functional elements. These objects are made of brick, porcelain and steel: an interesting mix of industrial and valuable materials.
“I zoom in on the elements that most architects try to keep out of sight,” Freya says.
The objects are available through Valerie Objects
