The distinctive quilted surface of the Blown table lamp reflects and refracts the light to create an intimate, almost artistic expression. An addition to the Blown pendant series by the same designer, Samuel Wilkinson’s design is crafted from translucent silver-hued glass set on a Nero Marquina marble base with a dimmer switch to adjust the light. Ideal on a bedside table, a desk or windowsill, it illuminates any space to striking effect.
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.
