Blown Pendant Lamp SW4, opal white
Designer: Samuel Wilkinson
Design Year: 2014
Blown is Samuel Wilkinson’s first lamp for &tradition. A mouth-blown pendant with a quilted pattern, it comes in two versions: a translucent variant with a silver lustre globe and sandblasted opal white globe. The pendant is fitted with a powder-coated cast metal suspension.
The pendant was conceived as an exploration of the reflections, distortions, and refractions of a light source when surrounded by patterned glass. Wilkinson explains the wide range of inspirations he looked to when developing Blown: “Like with any project, you start with an idea, and then you start looking at the world through a sort of filter. I’ve looked at antique ceramics, old glass pieces, lenses from very old lamps, lighthouses, even a mirrored bottle, just to see the way the light comes off it.” Wilkinson even sought inspiration in seeds and berries - particularly raspberries - for the quilted texture of the glass. Blown makes a statement as a standalone item, but works equally as well in clusters or in succession. The two versions cater to a range of interiors, with the sandblasted variant providing a subtle, sophisticated glow, while the translucent version transforms the space it inhabits with the intricate textures and patterning.
