His work featured a variety of materials, including iron, bones, wood and even weapons and industrial waste. In addition to sculpture, Luginbühl also produced graphic design, lyric poetry and more fleeting works such as burning things in public as a form of protest. About 60 of his works are on display in a park in Bern.
