do you have a modish modern marble fetish?! look no further than british designer lee broom‘s nouveau rebel collection opening at the future perfect. the collection, launched during london design festival in september 2014 at his flagship london store, is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the cultural associations of marble, the collection’s core material. the collection is comprised of five products in lighting, glassware and accessories
“i named the collection nouveau rebel as it is a material favored by the traditional art world and also the nouveau riche. i like the tipping point between these two worlds, and i wanted to create contemporary products that use the material in new ways. i am very excited to bring this new collection to new york.” says broom.
