Lee Broom adapts the concept of his suspended mobile Eclipse Pendant in this sculptural table lamp variation. Like the pendant, chandelier and wall sconce in the series, this table-top version offers a different perspective from every angle. Intersecting discs in polished chrome and opal acrylic are mounted on a mirror-finish base and then rotate by 90 degrees. Refractive properties of an etched core and concealed LED technology innovated in-house by Lee Broom create a diffused halo, underscoring its modern timelessness. Once again, the British design wunderkind provides a captivating meditation on the circle, one of his signature motifs.

“I like the way material can be de rigueur or passé,” says London-based Lee Broom about his fondness for taking traditional materials such as cut crystal or marble and using them in dramatic and often playful ways. With that in mind, UK’s The Guardian says, “Lee Broom is to furniture what Marc Jacobs or Tom Ford are to fashion.” Lee comes by that kind of iconoclasm naturally, having first studied theatre and then switching gears to apprentice with legendary English designer Vivienne Westwood and study fashion at Central St Martins.
Yet his first commissions were for interiors and Lee never looked back, seeing a springboard for his own designs such as the Decanterlight, modeled on vintage crystal and then manufactured with time-honored means. Emerging as a champion of British craftsmanship, his prodigious output of 75-and-counting products and countless interiors in less than 10 years of business recently led to The Queen's Award for Enterprise in International Trade. Taking a label from one of his collections, this nouveau rebel no doubt will continue to shake things up.
