London designer Lee Broom has created all-black versions of his most iconic furniture and lighting pieces in celebration of his Studio’s 10th anniversary. Broom, who started his eponymous studio in 2007, will present the totally black “On Reflection” collection during London Design Festival in September.
To create the collection, Broom looked back over his 10-year career and brought together some of his most notable pieces – each reinterpreted in a monochromatic palette.
These 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.
For a week-long period during London Design Festival, Broom’s Shoreditch store will be fully decorated in black and charcoal grey – providing a camouflaged art deco-inspired backdrop for the collection.
The studio comments, “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. On reflection, the true nature of the tableau will be revealed with a surprising, surreal and modern twist.”
