London Design Festival: Hackney designer Lee Broom has transformed his studio into an old-fashioned grocery store for the London Design Festival (+ interactive image). Broom spoke to Dezeen about the installation and we've annotated a photo of the space with his insights above.

"We're just showing one product, the Crystal Bulb, so I felt like I needed to present it in lots of alternative ways," Broom told Dezeen.

Two hundred of the bulbs are presented in crates, cabinets, weighing scales and jars, as well as hanging from the ceiling and reflected in mirrors.

The hand-blown, cut-glass bulbs were inspired by whisky decanters and are made by British firm Cumbria Crystal. Read more about them in our earlier story. The Crystal Bulbs are also available at our pop-up shop Dezeen Super Store at 38 Monmouth Street until 30 September.

The panelling is recycled from his Public House installation styled like an English pub in Milan earlier this year, where the Crystal Bulb was unveiled for the first time.

This time last year, Broom used the same space to create his dark, moody Salon installation to showcase his furniture with studded detailing.

    Amazing product, displayed in a great way. I love how more traditional design is making its way back into fashion, though I’m not convinced by the wood shavings on the floor!

    Wood-shavings won’t cure you from hipster smelly feet syndrome, that’s what happens when you wear no socks with leather shoes.
