Satellite Pendant Lamp
Designed by Mathieu Matégot, 1953
Made in Denmark by Gubi
The Satellite Pendant of two sizes is designed by Mathieu Matégot in 1953 with geometrical shapes and an organic shade to create outstanding sculptural aesthetics. The name, Satellite, was given by Matégot as a wink and tribute to the scientific progress in France in the years after the Second World War.
The Satellite Pendant holds the distinctive trait of Rigitulle, a technique and material invented by the designer himself that makes it possible to bend and fold the fabric-like metal sheet to an original, oblong shaped pendant lamp. The lampshade has five colour options; midnight black, white cloud, shy cherry, venetian gold and rainy grey, and is unique with its bulb all covered by perforated metal to exude an atmospheric light - creating a festive appearance. The interplay of light and shadow casted on walls and floors generate a dramatic feature in any dining room, hallway or restaurant. Hang the Satellite Pendant alone as a characteristic piece or in multiples to create a cloud of luminosity.
