Massimo Buster Minale is a London architect and industrial designer with a passion for metalwork, motorcycles and music. Following a career at Foster & Partners, he launched Buster + Punch in 2013 and subsequently carved out a reputation with his precision-cut lighting and beautifully crafted hardware.
The luxurious simplicity of the electric products as well as the quality and design of the hardware was brought to our attention by Rocio Lereah, our architectural and interior designer. What first caught her eye, when she saw the company on a blog, was the use of rare materials and the quality of the finish. As she constantly reminds us, well-designed hardware lifts the aesthetic quality of any bespoke joinery, and it is these small details that bring the whole scheme together and makes it unique.
The ‘Electricity’ range is an assortment of solid metal light switches & dimmer with diamond-cut knurled knob, designed “to feel amazing with every touch”. The switches & dimmers are flat plate and finished with their signature solid penny buttons – which can only be opened by using a British 1p coin. There is a choice of over 40 different combinations of metal finishes to suit any wall colour, from brass, matt white to satin black.
