DESCRIPTION

Decode London pumps up the volume with the giant version of its Vessel Pendant. The markedly oversize glass shade surrounds British industrial designer Samuel Wilkinson’s iconic Plumen 001 light bulb, much like a ship within a bottle (the inspiration for the original Vessel, also at A+R.) Mouth-blown by master craftsmen, the glass shade in either clear or smoky tint softens the illumination without hiding the intriguingly twisting bulb. A statement-maker in any space, the bigger shade multiplies the effect of light bouncing off the glass’s sides and the unexpected, irregular reflections that appear holographic.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER: SAM WILKINSON

SAMUEL WILKINSON

A high-achiever in science and math, Englishman Samuel Wilkinson didn’t seem a likely candidate for a design career as a student growing up in Devon. “In art I got a D, so technically I didn’t even pass,” he says. But it all clicked during an internship with an architect when he discovered computer-aided design. After getting a degree from London’s Ravensbourne College of Art & Design and working for several leading firms, he put his own studio on the map with the Plumen 001. The breakthrough design for a low-energy light bulb won the London Design Museum Design of the Year award among other accolades. Current furniture and lighting projects include a19-foot-tall solar tree which one day might power a city. And he happily says he’s only just getting started. “You’re a ‘young designer’ until you’re in your fifties.”
