Brick’s Reflection - LINDE FREYA TANGELDER - DESTROYERS/BUILDERS
Brick’s Reflection is a tribute to the brick – to its rough, veined surface and its material composition. Inspired by its long history and its origin, Linde Freya researched its characteristics and particularities and decided to re-interpret its field of application.
Brick’s Reflection is a chair that brings together the warm, archetypical orange of the bricks and the cool, slightly reflective, silver-coloured aluminium and combines the stone’s roughness and the metal’s smoothness. The chair’s proportions flirt with the limits of stability: the weight of the massive brick backrest and the aluminium seat, counterbalance each other delicately. The design also represents an important aspect of Linde’s overall practice and aesthetic – reflecting both a devotion to man-made materials and a desire to let this human involvement explicitly resonate in the final result – design objects deliberately echoing the seam of a two-piece mould or the specific patterns generated by manual sanding.

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.
