Patterned reflections of light add ambience to any setting in this table version of the mouth-blown glass pendant ‘Blown,’ by Samuel Wilkinson for &Tradition. Switched off, the Blown table lamp has a textured surface pattern that’s truly unique. Switched on, you’ll instantly see its effect on your surroundings — a mesmerising projection of light and shadows. “I wanted to create a surface texture that was interesting to begin with,” notes London-based designer Samuel Wilkinson. “Where the illumination adds an extra dimension, playing on the reflections and refractions of the glass.” Uniting traditional craftsmanship with innovative technology, the lozenge-shaped surface of the mouth-blown glass shade is created using 3D computer-aided design technology, yet the final result is mouth-blown by skilled craftspeople. The translucent silver-hued glass is set on a Nero Marquina marble base that features a dimmer switch to adjust the light. Whether positioned on a windowsill, bedside table or desk, Blown’s tactile, diamond-shaped glass surface projects intricate patterns that radiate a soothing sense of light.
