Emerging design studios continue to wow us with each passing year, and Decode is another that’s been on our radar. Founder Samuel Wilkinson graduated from design school in London in 2007 and founded Decode to near instantaneous success. His Heavy Light is one that put the company on the map, made from slip-cast concrete and providing a foreshadow to the surge of concrete designs we’ve seen since.
The Heavy Light takes a traditionally industrial material—concrete—and brings it to a whole new level, showcasing the natural pattern and color variations in each fixture.
You might also know Wilkinson from the slew of British Design Awards he’s won since launching Decode. But if not for that, you probably recognize one of his earlier designs, the Plumen 001 Lightbulb. This twisted CFL bulb well-received by design enthusiasts, and was the center of one of Wilkinson’s designs for Decode: The Vessel collection was designed specifically to house the Plumen Bulb.
