Buster + Punch: Lights to Look Fabulous By

HyperFocal: 0

SEEN has been bathing in soft, flattering, warm light courtesy of Sweden and UK-based Buster + Punch who are on the cusp of launching their new collection ‘Stoned’ before they go to Euroluce. The lights are very Scandinavian in style with perfect attention to detail – as befits a country who spend so much of their time indoors. The lights are soft, warm, dimmable and use LED technology to mimic natural light rather than harsh artificial illumination. The ‘Stoned’ range resembles candles and would not look at all out of place in a church. Their bases are solid and heavy, available in honed black granite or polished white marble: these lights are an investment, boasting 50,000 hours of use.

The ‘Caged’ range is designed to be modular: cages of back steel can be arranged in multiple ways with lights depending within. They have great versatility and be added to or reduced as you please. Buster + Punch’s Euroluce stand will see a huge chandelier arrangement demonstrating the range’s full capability.

The lights are designed to reflect changing fashions. Backplates of blackened steel, brushed steel or polished marble can be interchanged to ring the changes, but the restricted palette of colours and textures makes for a highly versatile piece of interior design.

Massimo, CEO of Buster + Punch started life as an architect for Zaha Hadid, amongst others but found his energy rather restricted by the length of time that architectural projects take, so he gave that up and built motorbikes instead for private clients. Seeing a gap in the market for thoughtful and lasting lighting design that was also Eco-aware, Massimo drew from Scandinavian influences of warmth and cosiness to create lighting that was easy to live with, and capable of integration into any home, whatever the style. With Spring on its way and British people sighing with relief at the end of winter, it’s a style we’d do well to embrace.
