Observatory by Lee Broom

From a celebratory carrousel to travelling showcase, Broom’s inventive installations have sprawled across Milan over the last couple of years. For 2018, the British designer is concentrating on new designs with the release of Observatory, the first in a three phase launch throughout the year. The collection of celestial lighting will embrace Broom’s sculptural side working with innovative LED technology, all that will be on view at an alluring grade II listed building in Brera.
