MILAN 2015: Lee Broom´s Department Store

No, I have not dropped of the face of the earth, I have just had a lot on my plate since I came back from Salone del Mobile, the furniture and design fair in Milan, Italy – which is THE place to be in April every year. As usual it was hectic, inspiring and also tiring … one always feels that one should have had much more time. In the coming weeks I will present some of the things, trends and exhibitions that excited me most, but I will start you of gently, as I myself started early one morning in the San Gregorio Docet, at the talented British designer Lee Broom´s Department Store. A magical, mystery tour …
Window_Fulcrum Pendant LightsLee Broom had his breakthrough some years ago with the Crystal Bulb-lamp, and his star has risen steadily since then. In Milan this year he had converted a deserted shop space into his own personal department store.
Clock Tower Entrance_Crescent and Ring LightsThis was a wonderful way to start a long day in Milan, so peaceful and beautiful. The whole store was “draped” in grey, through clever use of paint and textiles. Lee used to work for Vivienne Westwood, the fashion designer, and she had designed the shop assistant´s clothing, which I unfortunately do not have images of … Lee Broom presented a number of new beautiful lamps, but also interesting and playful furniture – as so many others in Milan, one could clearly see influences from the Memphis design group, led by Ettore Sottsass in the eighties.
