Welcome back to The Chaise Lounge. In the first episode of season 21, Nick talks to Stockholm-based, London-born designer Massimo Minale, founder of Buster + Punch a home fashion and custom motorcycle company that he started as a way to feel more creatively fulfilled after days of putting effort into architecture projects he might never see turn into a building.
After making bikes for such clients as Keith Richards, Minale found himself getting requests for furniture that matched the aesthetic of the bikes, resulting in The Rockstar Bar. From there, Buster + Punch moved toward making fashionable home products that were just a step up from the local hardware store without being ludicrously expensive. As an architect, Minale was often frustrated by the process of sourcing pieces both liked and was happy budgeting for. So Buster + Punch launched a line of fashion light switches consumers and designers could be excited to use and be happy to pay for.
