In this third designer spotlight the UK-based designer Lee Broom. Broom recently opened his first store during the London Design Festival. The ‘Electra House’ presents the complete range of lightning and furniture in unexpected ways. Broom started out in theatre school, which adds his feeling for drama in his designs. I couldn’t keep his designs all for myself, so on this Thursday – from London with love – designer Lee Broom.
[dropcap]B[/dropcap]room’s vision on design started on the age of 17, when he won a fashion design competition, which led to a meet with Vivienne Westwood. Working at Vivienne Westwood created his passion for British manufacturing. That process is now part of his philosophy. Combined with his sense of drama and fashion know-how got him to design over 40 retail, restaurant and bar interiors. He won more than 20 awards including the ELLE Decoration British Design Awards of 2012 for his Crystal Bulb – which is one of my personal favorites.
The fact that he first researches the manufacturing techniques makes him in my eyes a great designer with a booming skill pack. But enough with words enjoy the visuals of his work!
