When it comes to interior design, inspiration abounds and styles vary. While many opt for reinterpretations of past designs, London-based interior design label Buster + Punch turns to the streets for fresh inspiration.
Buster + Punch refers to itself as an interior fashion design label, which is quite appropriate given its sense of style and avant-garde aesthetic. The company believes that interior style is completed by lighting and art, which the Buster + Punch team members craft along with other unexpected furniture pieces like hardware, motorcycles, and whiskey bars. They gather their inspiration from London’s fashion and music scene which is often offbeat, and the designers in turn collaborate with fashion designers, musicians, graffiti and street artists, and motorcycle builders alike to imbue the artistic edge that makes Buster + Punch pieces unique.
The company, founded by Massimo Buster Minale just a few short years ago, had humble beginnings in an East London garage. Minale quickly discovered his passion for crafting things he loves inspired by an artistic world he loves. Now, the brand showcases its affinity for street art and international talent in a string of collaborations with various artists. What's more, the upcoming collaboration takes an important platform - charity. Buster + Punch will host artist Twoone in its Berlin studio to create works that will be sold for charity. Twoone, who is a well known graffiti artist, will create works on a 3x1 meter panel made of brushed matte black steel in a variety of techniques and mediums. The works will be auctioned off online beginning June 30th. All the proceeds will go to The National Foundation for Youth Music, which invests in music-making projects for youth who live in or experience challenging circumstances. With this new venture, Buster + Punch becomes a design label focused not only on innovation and inspiration, but intention.
