UK designer unveils new glassware collection
Milan, April 6, 2014
Renowned British designer Lee Broom is set to launch his new 'On the Rock' glassware collection at Spazio Pontaccio, one of Milan’s leading design boutiques for the Salone del Mobile 2014.
On the Rock – a set of a wine and a champagne glass that combine exquisite lead crystal and beautiful Italian Carrara marble will be part of an exclusive dinner party taking place in the windows of the showroom on April 8 in celebration of the opening of the Salone.
One of the world's largest home design exhibition, Salone del Mobile 2014 will run till April 13.
A limited edition run of 30 wine glasses and 30 champagne glasses will also be available to buy from a special pop up shop within Spazio Pontaccio from April 9 to 13.
Each crystal vessel is fused to the white marble base engraved with the signature Lee Broom crest to create dramatic drinking glasses. Each glass will retail at 75 euros ($103) from the Spazio Pontaccio pop up shop and for £60 ($99.8) in the UK.
"I am delighted to be presenting my new glassware collection at Spazio Pontaccio this April for the Salone. On the Rock combines stunning Italian marble and hand-blown lead crystal vessels mixing traditional materials to create a contemporary glassware collection," remarked Lee Broom.
"Fusing the delicate crystal with the heavy marble base plays with the idea of balance - both structurally and through the contrasting materials. I am sure they will add to the theatricality and unique experience of the dinner party in Milan!," he added.
Also on show and available to buy through special order at the Spazio Pontaccio pop up shop will be Carousel, Broom’s contemporary light fitting inspired by the Merry-Go-Rounds found at British fairgrounds in a new polished brass finish.
A new addition to the Fulcrum range of sculptural candlesticks will also be available to purchase in a clear solid optical crystal design.
Alongside this, Broom will present the successful Half Cut glassware collection, now available through the Lee Broom store and dealers worldwide.-TradeArabia News Service
