While experimenting with the reflections and refraction of light, designer Samuel Wilkinson discovered a beautiful quilted effect when the light source was surrounded by patterned glass. This led to his design of the Blown series of lamps - and the launch of the Blown ceiling lamp.

Choose from either silver or opal glass and let yourself be mesmerised by the effect. Switched on, the Blown ceiling lamp emits a soft light that projects a quilted pattern dispersed across the ceiling. Brilliant for a home, high-end hotel, restaurant, lounge or any other such setting, it adds a subtle sense of graphics that’s striking.
The name Blown is inspired by the process of creating the lamp itself, where each lamp is mouth-blown by artisans and expert crafts people. An authentic technique that contributes to the stunning patterns projected onto the ceiling when lit, transforming any space into a work of art.


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.
