Blown is Samuel Wilkinson’s first lamp for &tradition. A mouth-blown table lamp with a quilted pattern and a beautiful silver lustre globe. Set on a Nero Marquina marble base with a dimmer switch to adjust the light, this is an ideal addition to a bedside table, a desk or windowsill as it illuminates any space to striking effect.
The collection was conceived as an exploration of the reflections, distortions, and refractions of a light source when surrounded by patterned glass. Wilkinson explains the wide range of inspirations he looked to when developing Blown: “Like with any project, you start with an idea, and then you start looking at the world through a sort of filter. I’ve looked at antique ceramics, old glass pieces, lenses from very old lamps, lighthouses, even a mirrored bottle, just to see the way the light comes off it.” Wilkinson even sought inspiration in seeds and berries - particularly raspberries - for the quilted texture of the glass.
