Windows of Bo Bardi - side table - LINDE FREYA TANGELDER - DESTROYERS/BUILDERS
Building further on the series Windows of Bo Bardi – side tables, the new light yellowish version is taking one step further in a primitive way of making things. These primitive gestures I connect to youth; A natural state of curiosity, an urge for making. The origin of inspiration are the organic shaped windows in a brutalist concrete building; SESC Pompeia (Sao Paulo) by Italian-Brazilian architect Lina bo Bardi. This gesture of Lina bo Bardi, I see as a way of bringing wilderness in everyday life. Within these series of tables, when shaping these rounded forms, I am aiming to something similar; finding a balance between the fluid and the regularity, qualities that you both can find in the city.
In the Windows of Bo Bardi – Butter stool, I strive to implement the origins of making, within the contemporary environment, both on furniture as on architectural potential.
The light yellow colour is a natural colour of wood dust. This dust is a left-over of the sanding of wood, and is used in the coating of the stool. The colour reminds of bones, horn, bee wax.

Bram Vanderbeke (b.1991), lives and works in Ghent, and graduated in 2016 from the Design Academy Eindhoven. His work is diverse, and has a sculptural and monumental form of language. Bram explores and reforms relationships between object, environment and user, and plays with materials, form and functionality. His objects are artistic manifestations in which their functionality is not delineated.
Ben Storms (b.1983) lives and works in Antwerp. Thinking in terms of matter, he tends to assemble form, material and technique in a way that is both innovative and compelling. Ben prefers to start with one material and then look at it without prejudice. His research is similarly uninhibited, ensuring he captures all the possibilities the material has to offer. By probing its boundaries to and beyond the limits, he creates a rather surprising language of form.
Charlotte Jonckheer (b.1988) works on various design projects with flexible partnerships. Her main focus is the emotional value sparked by the use of a design object. Inspired by nature and human behaviour, she plays with anticipation and familiarisation to create designs that intrigue their user and activate interaction.
Linde Freya Tangelder (b.1987) is originally from the Netherlands but is based in Brussels with her studio, destroyers/builders. With a focus on materiality, the studio strives for sensory relevance and cultural value in detail and on a larger scale. Her works have a sculptural and architectural character and are on the edge of contemporary material use and traditional crafts. Working with a wide range of materials – high and low-valued – new values arise. Linde Freya develops objects and projects, based on a method from where material and objects can grow into architectural interventions. She opens up traditional usage and transforms knowledge into new ways of bringing an object closer to our senses. The studio takes on projects that range from limited editions to commissioned projects.
Nel Verbeke (b.1989) lives and works in Brussels. With a background in visual art and a specialisation in design and design research, Nel is primarily a concept designer. Balancing between arts and design, her vocation will always be the emotional potential of shape and space. Fascinated by conceptual thinking, she shies away from the obvious focus.
