Buster + Punch is a London based company that creates daring and evocative design objects that celebrate custom living and being individual. The brand has nothing to do with uniformity and everything to do with standing out from the crowd according to the founders.
It all started in a small garage in East London, where we discovered a passion for customising the things we love. From light fittings to motorcycles, furniture to leather jackets, we expressed our personality the only way we knew how – by elevating the ordinary into the extraordinary, says Massimo Buster Minale – MD of Buster + Punch.
Buster + Punch started off by making certain one-off pieces for clients that included musicians, tattoo artists, rockstars, actors etc. This original work grew into their first ‘mass-market’ collection called HOOKED. They have a workshop in London where the majority of the collection are made. Clients are invited into the workshop to see the products being made, and they have a chance to personalise them as well.
Drawn from a world of custom motorcycles and rockstar lifestyle, our first collection Hooked explores the darker side of life. The burnt rubber of a Harley, knurled grip of the volume knob and sensual touch of quilted silk, have inspired solid brass light fittings, whiskey bars, wingback chairs and even a limited edition motorcycle, continues Massimo Buster Minale.
