Clerkenwell Design Week highlights: Buster + Punch

Contemporary-British-Design-12

As part of our Clerkenwell Design Week highlights feature we look at some of the brands that were on showcase during the London event. Today we bring you British design brand, Buster + Punch

Establised in 2012, Buster + Punch was set up by Massimo Buster Minale, an architect and interior designer from London. The firm can be described as a love affair between distilled luxury and daring distinction, translated into crafted design objects that celebrate custom living and being individual.

Their first collection ‘Hooked’ explores the darker side of life, drawn from a world of custom motorcycles and rockstar lifestyle. From knurled brass light fittings to whisky bars and even a limited edition custom motorcycle, they have nothing to do with uniformity and everything to do with standing out from the crowd.

Their first collection was a world exclusive to Clerkenwell Design Week and included – The Rockstar (whisky bar), Wingback Remix (armchair) and Custom Brassware.

The Rockstar 

This stunning whisky bar is hand-made in the UK from either solid American Black Walnut or Blackened Ash. The quilted back panel comes in sumptuous grey berry silk or rockstar black leather. To the side sits a knurled brass light fitting with a snake’s heat cage for protection. The bar opens from the top and is finished with custom brass buttons, brass butler hinges and our signature knurled brass furniture handles.

Wingback Remix

The Wingback Remix is hand-made in the UK from either American Black Walnut or Blackened Ash. The chair comes with a choice of luscious grey berry silk or rockstar black leather pads. To one side of the chair’s elegant wing sits a solid  shard of satin brass, secured with brass furniture buttons. The shard supports the brands’ signature hook, which can either hold a knurled brass reading light or your leather trousers after a gig. The chair is then finished with brass buttons.

Hooked

This pendant light is inspired by custom motorcycles and an electric guitar, made from solid knurled brass with matt rubber detailing. The ceiling rose holds the signature brass hook, which allows the pendant to be raised and lowered at will. The hook can also be removed from the rose and installed into your ceiling to allow the light to sit perfectly above your furniture below.

The chandelier’s are made up of either three or six light pendants. Made from knurled brass with matt rubber detailing, the pendants centre around a matt rubber ceiling rose which houses our signature brass hooks. The hooks allow the pendants to be raised and lowered at will. The hooks can also be removed from the rose and installed into your ceiling to allow the light to take on any sculptural shape you desire. The chandelier can be finished with any combination of their stunning shades – made from bronzed gun metal with brass button detailing.
