Samuel Wilkinson graduated in furniture and related product design at Ravensboure College of Art & Design in 2002. While at Ravensbourne Wilkinson won several design awards, including the RSA award and D&AD New Blood. He went straight into employment working for leading consultancies such as Tangerine, Fitch:London, PearsonLloyd, and Conran. During these years he worked on various award winning projects for leading clients such as British Airways, Audi, LG, Samsung, and Virgin Airways. Wilkinson is on a quest to add a fresh dynamic approach to either form or function. For the lamp series, Blown, he researched glass from lighthouses to mirrored bottles and found inspiration from raspberries, which translated into the quilted texture of the glass.
