Blown Pendant SW3 is a mouth blown glass pendant lamp with a natural and simple beauty, designed by Samuel Wilkinson for &Tradition. With a quilted pattern, it comes in two versions. The pendant is fitted with a powder-coated cast metal suspension. The pendant was conceived as an exploration of the reflections, distortions, and refractions of a light source when surrounded by patterned glass. 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 explained.” Wilkinson even sought inspiration in seeds and berries — particularly raspberries — for the quilted texture of the glass. Blown makes a statement as a standalone item, but works equally as well in clusters or in succession. The two versions cater to a range of interiors, with the sandblasted variant providing a subtle, sophisticated glow, while the translucent version transforms the space it inhabits with the intricate textures and patterning.
