Samuel Wilkinson’s ‘Blown’ lamp for Danish brand &tradition is a mouth-blown pendant light with a patterned surface that reflects and refracts light.

 

 

 

“I wanted to explore reflection and refraction in glass, to see how it breaks up the light.” says Wilkinson. “I wanted to design something that really enhanced that aspect of the material”.

Blown is a mouth-blown glass pendant light with a variegated lozenged pattern imprinted on the surface which encloses the light source. It comes in two versions: translucent with a silver lustre and sandblasted matte white. Both versions are finished off with a powder-coated die-cast aluminium suspension and a fabric chord.

Blown is Wilkinson’s first light for &tradition. “It’s nice to be working with Samuel Wilkinson on a pendant light that marries traditional form with material innovation in this way,” says Brand Manager Martin Kornbek Hansen. Wilkinson has previously designed the Hoof tables for &tradition. Like the Hoof tables, Blown is experimenting with a manufacturing process which combines industrial manufacture with a hand-crafted finish. While the making of Blown relies on technical 3D CAD (computer-aided design), the end product is mouth-blown by highly skilled craftsmen, connecting traditional craft with innovative technology.
