Broom’s designs combine craft, heritage and modernity and can be seen in restaurants, hotels and bars across the world as well as gracing magazine covers and newspapers internationally. They are at the same time unique and also familiar; taking classical styles and traditional materials Broom reinterprets them in new and contemporary ways always with an unexpected edge.

OPTICALITY – LONDON DESIGN FESTIVAL 2016

Having started out in theatre school, a beginning which has greatly influenced the sense of drama and narrative that his collections create, Broom’s career took a change of direction after he won a fashion design competition at the age of 17. This led him to meet and then go onto work for the legendary designer Vivienne Westwood, after which he studied for a degree in fashion design at Central St Martins. Fashion is still a great source of inspiration and The Guardian commented, “Lee Broom is to furniture what Marc Jacobs or Tom Ford are to fashion.” Taking inspiration from his background in fashion design, Broom strives to embrace and explore new themes whist keeping an overarching house style.

Using the highest quality materials including marble from Carrara and crystal from the Czech Republic, Broom works with manufactures to constantly evolve and innovate and lead on traditional production techniques. Presenting his collections each year in Milan, New York and London Design Weeks, he has gained a reputation for creating conceptual dynamic installations which are surreal, experiential and always unexpected.

Product and Design

LENS FLAIR PENDANT LIGHT

LENS FLAIR PENDANT LIGHT

Inspired by telescopic lenses and the art of horizontal and vertical refractions, Lens Flair is a piece of two halves, seamlessly combining the solid and the transparent. A detailed cross-cut lens emits a soft deflected light, which is juxtaposed by contemporary solid casing in brushed brass or matte black finishes. The beautiful new piece is available as a Pendant Light and Table Lamp, measuring 40 centimeters in diameter. Lens Flair makes a bold statement by itself, or multiple pendants can be hung to create a celestial installation.

OPTICAL LIGHT

OPTICAL LIGHT

Op Art graphic patterns are the inspiration for this modern pendant light. Made from powdered coated spun steel and blown from opaque glass, the asymmetry of the black stripes are in contrast to the classic spherical shape of the globe. When viewed from all sides, Optical’s linear pattern changes at every angle.

CRESCENT LIGHT

CRESCENT LIGHT

An illuminated sphere sliced in half to reveal a crescent-shaped brushed brass fascia, Crescent seamlessly combines the solid and the opaque.

ECLIPSE CHANDELIER 3 PIECE

ECLIPSE CHANDELIER 3 PIECE

Eclipse is celestial in both its name and inspiration. Mirror-polished chrome and acrylic discs interact, dissect and obscure, which both eclipses and reveals its illumination to the viewer at the same time. Eclipse has been produced as a singular pendant light, tiered chandelier, table lamp and surface light.
