Six ethereal lighting collections inspired by places of worship: Divine Inspiration is the first lighting product released from Lee Broom in four years and marks the brand’s 15-year anniversary.
Known for pushing the boundaries of how materials can be used and for examining the intersection between architecture, art and design, Lee Broom presents 30 new products in multiple configurations, finishes and unexplored materials.
These include carved oak, extruded aluminum, plaster and Jesmonite.
Vesper is inspired by the simple geometric lines of Brutalist sculpture and modernist cathedral lighting.
Formed with extruded aluminum Vesper explores the delicate balance and interconnection of its rectangular cubes that are seamlessly connected by illuminated spheres.
Other lights from Divine Inspiration include cast Jesmonite ceiling lights inspired by The Pantheon in Rome, an elegant, fluted pendant in carved oak reminiscent of mid-century altars and a brushed aluminum light with reeded glass lightbulbs.
Another is inspired by the glass brick windows of 1970s Post-Modern churches.
Also, an ethereal series of limited-edition pieces sculpted by Broom’s own hand in his London factory is part of the collection
