About This Item: 
The first illustrated monograph presenting the work of British designer Lee Broom, founder of the eponymous brand and celebrated for his stylish, contemporary take on classic design products. The book explores the many influences and ideas behind Broom's portfolio of more than 100 products as well as highlights the way in which he showcases his work through original and engaging installations, exhibitions, and films. 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 relating to a defining aspect of Broom's design personality. "Art Form" explores Broom's relationship with architecture and silhouette, as well as the way in which he works with form, balance, and symmetry. "History Repeats Itself" delves into Broom's fascination with historical starting points and reinvention and how techniques of the past can inform the future. "Material Boy" focuses on Broom's meticulous approach to the process of making, his clever use of materials, and the art of collaboration. Finally, "Drama of Design" is a study of Broom's background in theater and fashion and how both have permeated his creative thinking and the way he presents his work as immersive experiences. With special contributions by Christian Louboutin, Vivienne Westwood and Kelly Wearstler.
