Massimo Minale, an architect who worked with Richard Rogers and Foster & Partners, left that world behind when he founded Buster + Punch in a garage in East London. Minale, who says he’s interested in “motorcycles, metalwork, and music,” is focused on making items for everyday use, including light switches, light bulbs, cabinet hardware, and more. Stay tuned: he’s poised to launch a new line at the upcoming London Design Festival.
Here are a few favorites from the line:
