British product designer Lee Broom, most known for his standout hand-crafted lighting, has unveiled the Maestro chair as part of the London Design Festival.

To celebrate the Maestro, Broom has teamed up with Satore Studio to enter a new creative territory by curating a cinematic experience that shows a live orchestra performing on the chair. The short film is split into three parts: Act one features “Air” from the Holberg Suite by Edvard Grieg, act two hears Claude Debussy’s “Clair de Lune” performed in front of a back-lit moon, and act three delivers a passage from the fourth movement of Haydn’s “Symphony No.49” as a light show on the floor plays out.

Broom’s chair is equally musically-indebted, first and foremost taking its name from someone who is respected as a composer, teacher, or conductor. Secondly, its design is reminiscent of the coils of musical instruments. Three continuous hand-bent, hand-polished and plated tubes form the Maestro’s structure, creating a seamless support around the plush upholstery.

The front tube forms the front leg, the second sweeps underneath the seat for support, while the third curves to become the back leg. Broom offers the Maestro in three options, a soft satin brass, a highly reflective mirrored chrome, and a matte black finish, with each offering upholstery in velvet, wool, or leather in a spectrum of colors that come together in a luxurious harmony, just like the film portrays.

Lee Broom’s Maestro chair can be seen above and in a window display in its Shoreditch flagship until September 20. For more information about the chair, head over to the Lee Broom website.
