Higher than: Drummer Travis Barker with Buster + Punch founder Massimo Buster Minale.
Based on what pole of the generational spectrum you slide on, the identify Travis Barker will signify some thing marginally diverse to you. It’s possible you know him as the future Mr. Kourtney Kardashian? Possibly you will recall his Cadillac collection on that 2008 episode of Cribs. Possibly, when you hum alongside to his band Blink-182’s “What’s My Age Again?” you respond to that concern in the title with much more than a very little dismay.
Regardless, the multihyphenate drummer has included a clean part to his innovative résumé: solution designer. Right now Barker unveiled a nine-piece collection of hardware, add-ons, clothes, and jewelry (obtainable starting February 23) with the British home brand name Buster + Punch—the musician’s to start with interiors collab. And, in keeping with Barker’s punk aesthetic (look at out his latest tat), each piece is a tribute to the cranium, from a cranium-formed doorstop to a series of grinning drawer pulls.
“I believe from the to start with time I observed [graphic] artists like Pushead and the skulls that he would put on Misfits albums or Metallica albums, that was really huge,” Barker mentioned of his inspiration in a advertising movie. “Or Zero Skateboards back in the day. I’ve normally cherished it. It screams rock and roll. It screams metal songs, punk songs.”
The drummer teamed up with Buster + Punch following he questioned the London- and Hollywood-dependent “home manner label” to trick out his Los Angeles audio studio with components and custom mild fixtures three yrs back. He hit it off with founder Massimo Buster Minale, who—after paying years as an inside architect at prestigious London firms like Foster + Companions and Rogers Stirk Harbour—spent his nights tinkering with custom bikes. In accordance to Minale, Buster + Punch grew out of an urge “to inject these incredibly dull styles of household fittings—like light switches and doorway handles and kitchen pulls—with the way of living piece that I understood from motorbikes and style and tunes.”
Barker had toyed with the concept of personalized drawer pulls before (“I keep in mind generating cranium knobs out of something just so I could have them at my residence,” he mentioned. “They were super Mickey Mouse.”) but ultimately requested Minale if he could trend a cranium-shaped drum critical for him, a instrument that allows the musician to tighten or loosen a drumhead. The pair formalized their partnership, and the collection grew to encompass, in addition to the doorstop and drawer pulls, a bowl, a candlestick, a table lamp, a necklace, and, of course, a drum key—all out there in weighty, hand-completed brass or metal.
“The room that you are living or work in is everything,” Barker reported. “For me it is simplicity—it’s minimum. My dwelling is like that too. You don’t require a ton, but what’s there counts”—simply place, all the compact things.
