"In the spirit of Maison&Objet's theme 'Take Care', we are showing an edited selection of pieces that bring a sense of the comfort of the home combined with an element of spirituality and mysticism," says Lee Broom.
British designer Lee Broom was invited to exhibit a unique feature by presenting iconic pieces, new developments and collaborations with some of Britain's leading designers.

The focal point of Lee Broom's exhibit is a dramatic 4m-tall Hail light, which has an elongated fluted form fabricated in aluminium with asymmetrically positioned reeded glass lightbulbs. Hail is inspired by the shards of light and shadow created from lancet windows in vast church arches.
Hail was complemented by two Vesper Duo lights, hung at a 3m-drop height. Vesper is inspired by the simple geometric lines of Brutalist sculpture and modernist cathedral lighting. Formed with extruded aluminium, Vesper explores the delicate balance and interconnection of its rectangular cubes that are seamlessly connected by illuminated spheres.
Resembling a dining room, the set is formed from a neutral palette of greys and brushed silvers and includes Broom's Musico Table and Musico Chairs, which are created with hand-bent, intricately-twisted stainless steel tubes. It is accessorised with Fulcrum Candlesticks in Nero Marquina Marble and a Split Mirror, formed with a precision cut slice, which shifts the mirror from its original position to reveal an oak-trimmed section of the black frame, offering an element of surrealism.
