Critically acclaimed British product and interior designer Lee Broom has transformed a street of disused shops on Via Alfredo Cappellini to create ‘The Department Store’, his largest exhibition to date with the launch of over twenty new products.
Encompassing furniture, lighting and accessories, the collection features new materials and new interpretations of those used in previous collections. Each piece incorporates traditional manufacturing techniques in innovative ways to produce this highly original body of work, all of which are presented in a dramatic series of interconnected department store-inspired vignettes.
Lee Broom’s trademark theatrical style of presenting his collections has been elevated for this show, striking the balance between formality and fun with modernism and nostalgia.
Lee Broom says:
This is my largest collection to date and I wanted to explore all the things that inspire me right now; from new materials, vivid colours, pop culture, craft culture, techniques from the past and shapes from the future. All of which is housed in my very own Department Store.
