Sexy Bulb Mate


I will be the first to admit that I hate the look of 99% of all energy efficient light bulbs. They are simply ugly – and it makes it harder to save the earth with ugly things. Does that make me a bad person? Probably.

Well now BUSTER has solved my conundrum. The Buster, aptly named after the firm Buster and Punch,  consumes just 5% of the energy used by a standard bulb. More importantly, it’s fucking sexy. Each bulb is available in gold, smoked gray or bright crystal.  But the interior is where the magic happens lies; at the heart of the BUSTER is a patented resin pipe that creates ambient light but can also cast a focused spotlight onto surfaces directly below. The bulb will fit in any fixture with an E27 base.

The BUSTER bulb retails for $59 and is available through Buster + Punch now.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
