Hackney designer Lee Broom will launch crystal light bulbs cut like whiskey decanters at Ventura Lambrate in Milan next week.
Taking inspiration from the delicate craftsmanship of crystal cutting, and following Broom’s hugely successful Decanterlight, Crystal Bulb combines industrial influences with decorative qualities, transforming the everyday light bulb into an ornamental light fitting.
Individually hand blown, each Crystal Bulb is cut with the decanter pattern, Broom has collaborated with experts at Cumbria Crystal in the UK, keeping true to his signature design ethos of working with British craftsmen.
'I wanted to create a light bulb as a more accessible design product and incorporating cut crystal seemed the most logical design as this has become a familiar style within my product ranges.'
The designer will present Crystal Bulb at Lee Broom Public House, his solo exhibition that will be styled like a British pub.
The Ventura Lambrate design district is open from 17 to 22 April.
