Lee Broom has created an exclusive window concept for luxury department store NK Stockholm for Stockholm Design Week. Presented under the theme of 'The Planetarium,' the renowned British designer has designed a contemporary and playful interpretation of 'The Red Planet.' All surfaces of the window display are in a striking deep red finish, and sculptural red rock formations add to the planetary presentation.
"We were delighted to be invited to collaborate with NK on their window display during Stockholm Design Week," Broom commented. "Creating installations with a narrative that is thought-provoking and eye-catching has always been part of what I do as I designer and I am excited that this project shows off the products in a very different light."
Iconic Lee Broom lighting and furniture designs are displayed in the window, including an installation of Orion lights. Orion is from Lee Broom's latest award-winning Observatory collection and comprises simple modular lights with opposing opaque and solid polished gold spheres along with opaque and solid polished gold tubes. These connect and expand horizontally and vertically to create bespoke constellations of light with infinite adaptations.
A focal piece is Lee Broom's Hanging Hoop Chair with red upholstery and brushed brass framework. Suspended from above, two brass plated steel circular hoops connect to create the striking silhouette of Hanging Hoop Chair, with the seat and backrest upholstered in Kvadrat wool.
Adding to the celestial theme, Crescent and Mini Crescent lights create an other-worldly glow formed from an illuminated sphere sliced in half to reveal a crescent-shaped brushed brass fascia, seamlessly combining the solid and the opaque.
