ILMEX Illumination - Brut Deluxe

Brut Deluxe is an architecture and design studio headed by the German architect Ben Busche (Munich, 1968). Brut Deluxe focuses on researching and creating space and its atmospheric quality, with projects covering the full range of scales of urban intervention: from ephemeral installations to industrial design, building and urban development.
