English designer Lee Broom founded his company five years ago, and has since gone on to become one of the UK’s leading interior and product designers.
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 winning a fashion design competition in association with The Clothes Show. This led him to meet and then go onto work with the legendary Vivienne Westwood, followed by studying fashion at Central St Martins.
In 2007 Lee launched his own label, Lee Broom. His first furniture collection‘Neo Neon‘ received critical acclaim, and since then, has launched a new collection each year, selling globally to London, Paris, New York, Hong Kong and the Middle East.
You could understand his design approach, by checking his collections below.
Heritage Boy draws on traditional British manufacturing techniques to create a modern-day furniture collection which is divided into three distinct ranges: Carpetry, Parquetry and Tiles. Broom has applied the same philosophy, classic shapes and daring applications to each distinctly unique range. All the pieces are made in the UK and involving these industries in his design process is something that Broom feels particularly passionate about.
And his lightings… There are so many different lightings. But every product includes a different metadological assessment. Decanterlight series can glow in clusters or individually, creating a majestic centre piece wherever they hang.
Taking inspiration from the delicate craftsmanship of crystal cutting, and following the hugely successful Decanterlight range, Crystal Bulb combines industrial influences with decorative qualities, transforming the everyday light bulb into an ornamental light fitting.
Beside product design, Lee Broom designs retailers, restaurants, cafes, bars and curates exhibition. To learn about him and his brand, use the link.
