Destroyers / Builders is a Brussel-based multidisciplinary design studio, established by Linde Freya and Jo Groven in 2014. Since then, the creative duo takes on various projects in the field of interior and exterior design, interacting between materials and objects.
Presented below, Archetyping Daybed, is a project preceded by thorough research in structures. The aim was to create a piece that symbolizes a compelling tension between hardness and softness.
The creative duo, standing behind Destroyers / Builders, decided to examine bed’s primary function. The final outcome is an object, that refers to the classical daybed and although it’s constructed out of basic forms, its scarved surface — atypical in appearance — does not encourage a soothing bedtime.
