Windows of Bo Bardi by Destroyers/Builders Studio


Designer Linde Freya Tangelder and her studio Destroyers/Builders have designed a side table with a shape that cites the architecture of renowned Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi. Brutalist building SESC Pompeia, by Lina bo Bardi (Sao Paulo) is a guidance within the process for ‘windows of bo bardi’. The interventions Lina bo Bardi, Italian-Brazilian architect, carried out and the experimental aspect for which she was given space, has taken on impressive forms. The organic windows in the concrete building create a fluid aspect to the heavy building. The lively structures of the concrete, sandblasted surfaces, to find the essence of the building. By connecting the one and the other section, she connects gravity with a lightness.

For the designer, it is an attempt to bring back a fragment of this architectural gestures, the materiality and her daring form language, in which allows further associations. Lina bo Bardi, admired in her social and architectural decisiveness. Brutal but delicate.
