In celebration of his studio’s 10th anniversary, London designer Lee Broom has redesigned all-black versions of his most iconic furniture and lighting pieces.
The totally-black exclusive collection “On Reflection” will be presented during London Design Festival from 16-24 September.
Broom, who started his eponymous studio in 2007, looked back over his 10-year career and brought together some of his most notable pieces – each reinterpreted in a monochromatic palette.
These well known pieces include the Hanging Hoop chair constructed from two brass-plated metal circles, and the Crescent light formed from an illuminated sphere that has been sliced and shifted.
The totemic-style Fulcrum light will also receive an all-black update, as will the Carousel pendant and On The Rock glassware.
During the London Design Week, Broom’s Shoreditch store will be fully decorated in black and charcoal grey – providing a camouflaged art deco-inspired backdrop for the collection.
“Presented in a tableau of an interior which will stylistically mix Art Deco and Bauhaus influences; visitors will be presented with a scene where nothing is quite what it first appears to be,” says the studio.
“On reflection, the true nature of the tableau will be revealed with a surprising, surreal and modern twist.”
In this year’s Milan design week, at Salone del Mobile, Broom has already presented the TIME MACHINE, a carousel with products he has designed over the past decade. as a modern art instalation and a retrospective to celebrate his studio’s 10th anniversary.
Also, he presented a grandfather-inspired clock to mark the occasion, which was produced in a limited edition run of 10 pieces – representative of the 10 years since his studio was launched.
