UK-based product and interior designer Lee Broom doesn't just design products or interiors. He puts on a production. In this episode, he entertains us with stories of being a child actor in a Shakespeare company, winning a fashion design competition that led to working with Vivienne Westwood, and designing the most expensive lightbulb you’ll ever buy. His flair for theatre makes an appearance in everything he does, from dramatic light fixtures to design week stunts he always puts on a gorgeous show.
Lee's flair for theatrics started at a young age on the stage, then progressed as he went into fashion design but took a zig into interiors, and then zagged to product. What we love about Lee is that he's able to merge his experiences in other industries by creating spectacles and interactive spaces that engage and delight, from decorated bar installations to mobile showrooms!
Lee's multi-colored background isn't the only interesting thing about him: he's charming, witty, and a self-proclaimed perfectionist. And, we discovered that he sometimes designs projects in his sleep - tune in to hear more!
