Salone del Mobile 2018 – Lee Broom Observatory presents Eclipse, Tidal, Aurora and Orion.
On Wednesday 18th April two of our designers, Natalia & Sheraine made it to Milan and one of their first stops was the Lee Broom Observatory at via Lovanio 6 in the Brera design district.
We were welcomed by a blue carpet leading to the exhibition. Great start!
Jim from Lee Broom gave us a tour of the place and shared his insight into the new collections. All of the lights were dimmed down from their usual full power to allow photographs to be taken.
First we saw the Eclipse surface, table and pendant lights – gorgeous and shiny pieces which fit well within the Lee Broom lighting collection. The mirror-polished chrome and acrylic discs interact with each other, dissect and obscure. This feature ‘eclipses’ but also at the same time reveals its illumination to the viewer.
Next section showed the Tidal table lamp. This one reminded us of the existing Crescent Collection in its shape but the shiny finish has taken it to a new level. The Tidal light is made up of “two balancing hemispheres appearing to be pulled apart by an unseen gravitational force”.
After turning the next corner we were amazed by the Aurora Chandeliers which were hung in a row at different heights. This beautiful feature pendants are made up of ribbed glass tubes with thin perpendicular LED filament inside, creating a glowing aura. All of the tubes are attached to rings which can be adjusted to sit at different heights, chosen by the user upon installation.
Last but not least, we were shown the Orion Globe and Tube pendants. These can be hung vertically or horizontally as a single pendant or in groups allowing unlimited configurations. The Orion Globe Pendant emits light from the opaque globe whilst the Orion Tube Pendant’s long tube gives off the light.
All of the lights above apart from the Tidal Table Lamp & the Aurora Chandeliers are available to order now and will be delivered within a few weeks. Please click on the links in this blog to find them or go here to find the whole collection.
