British interior and product designer Lee Broom has has designed over 40 bar and restaurant interiors across the UK, has won a whole bunch of awards, and The Times called him ‘The pin-up of British manufacturing’ not too long after he formed his own company in 2008. So, without further ado, here is the talk with the slides that he presented at PK9:
Lee takes us through his childhood in Birmingham, dramas at the Royal Shakespeare Company, college at Central St Martin’s, having Vivienne Westwood as a mentor, undressing Kate Moss, designing bars, setting up his own design company and exhibiting at Milan. Whew!
[Notes: Audio was recorded on a Zoom H1 recorder with one channel plugged direct into the desk and the other into a Rode NTG2 shotgun microphone. Audio post was done on Audacity and the bits put together in Premiere Pro. Thanks to Jon and Lizzie at Modus for the slides.]
