Blown SW4 is a small, more compact version of the existing pendant, available in silver lustre and opal glass. Adding an extra dimension to the beauty of surface and two dramatically different effects of light distribution.
“It’s rare to find a design like the Blown pendant, which not only illuminates a room, it also transforms your surroundings into art,” adds &tradition CEO / Founder Martin Kornbek Hansen. “People love the surface texture. By launching a smaller version in opal and silver, it’s a lamp that continues to leave people utterly enthralled.” Whether you choose to have one lamp or several together as a cluster, the effect is amazing both on and off.


Samuel Wilkinson

A graduate from Ravensboure College of Art & Design, the London-based de- signer created design consultancy projects for British Airways, Audi, LG, Samsung and Virgin Airways before moving onto furniture and industrial design. Boasting pieces in permanent collections at MoMA, the Cooper-Hewitt and the Victoria & Albert Museum.
Wilkinson is on a quest to add a fresh dynamic approach to either form or function. For “Blown”, he researched glass from lighthouses to mirrored bottles and found inspiration from raspberries, which translated into the quilted tex- ture of the glass.
Blown is a mouth-blown pendant lamp with a quilted pattern. The texture is rendered using a 3D CAD to model the structure of the metal mould used to imprint the diamond shapes onto the glass. Once shaped in a mould, the glass is inflated by mouth-blowing.“It’s an exquisite example of bridging craftsman- ship with digital technology,” adds Martin Kornbek Hansen.” An approach we value at &tradition.The result is an exploration of reflections, distortions and refractions of light which is nothing less than amazing.”
The Hoof Lounge Tables represent a creative process conceived in reverse. The idea started with the feet, which are sharpened at the ends akin to a horse’s hoof being trimmed before it is shod. The result is a striking visual

of wood,” explains Martin Kornbek Hansen. “A process of re-thinking how we design and manufacture products, which is close to our hearts at &tradition.”


Craft meets art. Function meets form. Material meets potential.
