Metaphysical Sightseeing

bus.group have collaborated with product designer Christian Metzner. For the first edition launched in our web shop, we have laced one of Metzner's classic products with our own signature accent. Handmade in Czech Republic, each carafe is sanded by hand to produce a silken smooth gradient that varnishes the product's lower half. Playful opacities are revealed with a delicate precision inside our inaugural collaboration.


Have you heard of pragmatic mythology?

From bus with love: our first ever signature shirt will be available for order soon in a limited edition of 100. Our first piece of merchandising – the PRAGMATIC MYTHOLOGY tee – is produced as a limited run in collaboration with silkscreen studio Merch and Destroy. For all the daydreamers, creative vanguards and design clairvoyants - the t-shirt is tailored for all measurements of mythos.
