About

We are artists.

At Budmen Industries we live at the intersection of art and technology.

We seek to explore the evolutionary cycle between creativity and tools. The rapid development of technology brings new ideas and art that could not have existed before its inception. In turn, these new creative possibilities shape the development of technology. The evolutionary relationship between technology and creativity is a cycle that will continue as long as we continue to explore our imagination.

Our practice is one part creative studio and one part machine shop. In the creative studio we create unique handcrafted furniture and art. In the machine shop we craft small-batch high-tech tools for 21st century creators.

Budmen's creative work and machines have been featured in a wide range of publications including: Architectural Digest, WIRED, The Wall Street Journal, YankoDesign, Hackaday, Fabbaloo and 3D Printing Industry. Their work has been exhibited at the London Science Museum, Carnegie Museum of Art, Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona, Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum, ArtScience Museum and other venues across the globe.
