British designer Lee Broom will present a range of outer-space-inspired lighting inside a listed building during this year’s Milan design week. Broom plans to showcase his new collection in a minimalist exhibition, called Observatory, inside a Grade II-listed building in Brera.
Encompassing four different designs, the range focuses solely on lighting – an area Broom describes as being fundamental to his studio. “This year’s launches see the focus return to lighting, which the brand is renowned for,” said a statement from the studio. “[It is] Lee Broom’s most progressive work to date with new stellar-inspired designs playing with proportions of vertical and horizontal space, sculptural, spherical form, and the refraction and reflection of light.”
Each of the four designs – named Eclipse, Orion, Aurora and Tidal – utilise LED technology. Eclipse is available as a chandelier, table and wall lamp. All feature polished stainless-steel and acrylic discs, which create a soft diffused light. Orion is designed to be customised, with movable tube lights offering both horizontal and vertical compositions. Each of the tube lamps is connected by polished gold spheres. Described by the studio as a “scalable chandelier”, Aurora features rings of LED lights, while Tidal is a table lamp formed from polished chrome and acrylic.
