A devotee of the modern Scandinavian style, Buch's organic, functional aesthetic has given rise to furniture that includes chairs, stools and cabinets. Like many of his Danish contemporaries, Buch combines fabric and leather with richly grained woods, such as polished teak, oak and rosewood. Buch achieved his first success with the Model 49 chair (1949). Produced in sculpted and dining styles, the chair features a "floating" curved seat and a classic modern Scandinavian aesthetic. Perhaps his most famous creation, the Modèle 61 (1961) bar stool features a typically Scandinavian base and organic sculpted lines. Many of Buch's works are named after the year in which they were designed, particularly those produced by cabinetmaker and furniture manufacturer Oddense Maskinsnedkeri. Oddense was renamed O.D. Møbler in the late 1960s or early 1970s, and this name appears on the labels of later Model 61 productions. Other Buch works include the Captain's Chair (1955) for Ørum Møbler, the Model 310 dining chair for Chr. Christiansen (1960s) and a T-shaped rosewood bar stool for Dyrlund (1960s).
