Lee Broom‘s nouveau globe is a light consisting of a seemingly solid half-sphere of Carrara marble topped by a dome of lead crystal.
Details: With its 40cm diameter, Globe emits light from an LED bulb set inside the base, shining through a thin Carrara marble top and illuminating unique patterns of the stone. Globe is part of Nouveau Rebel, Lee Broom’s new collection to be launched during the 2014 London Design Festival. For Broom “Nouveau Rebel” is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the cultural associations of marble, the collectionâs core material.
“I named the collection Nouveau Rebel as it is a material favoured by the traditional art world and also the nouveau riche. I like the tipping point between these two worlds, and I wanted to create contemporary products that use the material in new ways whilst referencing 80âs styling and traditional production methods” says Broom.
