Originally introduced in 2014, Blown never ceases to mesmerise design aficionados around the globe fascinated by its patterned reflections. 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 won multiple awards before opening his industrial design studio in 2008. A graduate from Ravensboure College of Art & Design, the London-based designer created design consultancy projects for British Airways, Audi, LG, Samsung and Virgin Atlantic 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 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.
