Linde Freya Tangelder
Within the works of Linde Freya Tangelder, founder of Antwerp based studio Destroyers/Builders, an interaction between the furniture pieces exists in an overarching inspiration; found in architectural elements, materials or building techniques.
Linde Freya Tangelder strives for sensory relevance and cultural value in detail and on a larger scale. The works have a sculptural and architectural character, and balance between contemporary and traditional elements.
Inspired by architectural shapes, the furniture pieces highlight the field between industry and human, through diverse materials. Constructions are scaled down to human sizes, and translations result into sculptural gestures.
Both low and high end materials get re-valued, reconsidered and transformed. The interventions and finishes by hand, give these architectural 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 Linde Freya Tangelder.
