Cross vs. Linear

Whether you want to play with subtlety or go bold and make a statement, Buster + Punch’s Cross-knurl and Linear-knurl give massive scope for expressing yourself.

For a full-bodied, strong look, many opt for Cross throughout, combining lighting, hardware, switches and outlets for a cohesive red thread. For a little added kick, use the knurl as the guiding element and introduce variation in the finish, like brass and steel in different spaces.

If you’re the kind of person who lives by the less is more school of thought, Linear is the knurl for you. Elegant and subtle, it’s inspired by fashion accessories. The design of the knurl allows us to pull back the scale and proportions on some of the collection too, for more variation to design with. 

Combining the two is never a bad thing either, using a single finish to link things together or going avant-garde and deliberately clashy.
