Linde Freya Tangelder is a furniture, product, and interior designer based in Belgium, where she founded her studio, Destroyers/Builders, in 2014. The studio strives for sensory relevance and cultural value in detail and on a larger scale, taking on projects that range from limited editions to commissioned assignments. Inspired by architectural shapes, the furniture pieces highlight the field between industry and humanity through diverse materials. Both low and high-end materials get re-valued, reconsidered, and transformed. The results are tactile, sculptural, and architectural, balanced between contemporary and traditional designs. Since opening her studio, in 2019, Tangelder was named Designer of the Year by Biennale Interieur in Belgium. In 2022, she created Soft Corners, her debut collaboration with Cassina, an ottoman series and low table featured in their Living Collection.
