Lee Broom has created one of his most significant landmark exhibitions to date in collaboration with Space Furniture, Australia. The installation is entitled ‘Park Life’ and is set within an underground car park below the flagship showroom of Space Furniture, Sydney. The 4,000 square feet presentation is the largest show Lee Broom has created.
Employing the urban surroundings of the location, Lee Broom has transformed the industrial car park and created a contemporary interpretation of a traditional garden park. Taking the form of a maze, ‘Park Life’ takes guests on a poetic journey of discovery through hidden passageways, featuring 16 tableaus and vignettes showcasing the brand’s lighting, furniture and accessories in a whole new light.
The exhibition takes inspiration from the pleasure gardens of the 18th century which were laid out with mazes and miniature waterways. These were the places to be seen and to see the latest in art, architecture, music and illuminations. In much the same way that visitors were entertained in pleasure gardens centuries ago, this modernist interpretation creates a sense of escapism, amusement and drama for which Lee Broom’s shows are best-known for.
In line with the brand’s continuing global expansion, Lee Broom is undertaking a tour of the region for the whole month of March, presenting a series of Design Talks in Singapore, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne coinciding with Singapore and Melbourne Design Weeks.
