London designer Lee Broom will also launch two faceted pendant lights in white and gold at the London Design Festival next month (see our earlier story on his Architrave collection).
One Light Only is inspired by Art Deco jewellery and 1970s fashion photography.
The lights come with a polished gold exterior and matt-white inner surface or vice versa, and will be on display from 18 to 26 September at Broom’s new Studio in Shoreditch, east London.
Here’s some more from the designers:
LEE BROOM LAUNCHES ‘ONE LIGHT ONLY’
Award-winning British designer, Lee Broom, presents his fourth collection at this year’s London Design Festival with the launch of a new lighting range, ‘One Light Only’.
After the success of ‘Heritage Boy’ at last year’s festival, ‘One Light Only’ (OLO) is a new collection of striking pendant lighting. Drawing on Broom’s fashion background, OLO is inspired by Art Deco jewellery and fashion photography from the late 1970’s.
OLO is characterised by a jewel-like gem faceted exterior lighting shell. The lights are presented in two striking finishes, matt white or polished gold. The interior shell of each light is juxtaposed against the exterior finish; reflective gold facets shine against the subtle matt white interior finish and vice versa.
Commenting on his latest range, Broom explains why this collection marks a departure from his previous work, “With OLO, I’ve taken a different design approach; I wanted to create a range which was particularly accessible and affordable…perhaps not such an arts and crafts approach where the collections I’ve created feature significant investments pieces. OLO is more of an accessories collection; it is truly inspired by my fashion background and presents a striking lighting solution.”
OLO features two different pendant-sized lights ranging from 10cm high to 30cm high. The range is designed to work in clusters, mixing small and large pendant sizes together. OLO retails from £245.
As part of the London Design Festival (18-26 September 2010), Broom is creating an impressive illuminated OLO installation, where visitors to his new brand new studio in East London will walk through the gem-faceted pendants.
Broom’s new gallery space based in London’s dynamic Shoreditch Triangle acts as a permanent showcase to his collections. The artistic studio has been curated to celebrate his iconic designs, both past and present.
