The quilted surface texture of the Blown table lamp is distinctive in itself. An extension of the small Blown pendant also by Samuel Wilkinson, it features a silver tinted translucent glass in the same small size, secured upright on a black marble base with a dimmer to adjust the light. Ideal in a private setting by a bedside, desk or windowsill, as well as a commercial or retail venue as part of a display, you can art direct the effect to be subtle or striking.


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.
