Blown SW3 Pendant

c. 2014

by Samuel Wilkinson
for &Tradition

The Blown pendant light, designed by Samuel Wilkin­son for &Tradition, exper­i­ments with the reflec­tions and refrac­tion of light. Designer Samuel Wilkin­son discov­ered a beau­ti­ful quilted effect when the light source combines with the patterned glass. This real­iza­tion led to his design of the Blown series. The glass is blown into a mold and hand­crafted. The suspen­sion system is made from powder-coated cast metal and has a safety wire.

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.
