Description

The first illustrated monograph presenting the work of the British designer Lee Broom, founder of his eponymous global brand. Broom is celebrated for his stylish, contemporary take on classic design products. The book explores the many influences and ideas behind Broom's portfolio of over 100 products as well as highlighting the way in which he showcases his work through original and engaging installation, exhibition, and film. Lee Broom furniture, lighting, and accessories, some of which is now held in the permanent collections of cultural institutions in London and New York, is at once familiar and yet feels new - a signature skill of reinterpretation and the mix of classicism and modernity. The book is presented thematically in four chapters, each one relating to the defining aspects of Broom's design personality. 1: Art Form explores Broom's relationship with architecture and silhouette, and the way in which he works with form, balance, and symmetry. 2: History Repeats Itself delves into Broom's fascination with historical starting points and reinvention and how techniques of the past can inform the future. 3: Material Boy focuses on Broom's meticulous approach to the process of making, his clever use of materials and the art of collaboration. 4: Drama of Design is a study of Broom's background in theatre and fashion and how both have permeated his creative thinking as well as the way in which he presents his work as immersive experiences.
