At A+R_Busch we believe in raw materials, custom craftsmanship and creating work that evolves over time. There is beauty in decay because it keeps materials dynamic and changing. Our pieces celebrate the wear and the presence of a materials past life.
We design and build up-cycled, modern furnishings using reclaimed materials. Each piece is unique and shows the hand, following our philosophy of art and craft.
