Description from Design Within Reach

In 1957, The Soviet Union launched the world’s first man-made object to orbit the earth. The satellite was about the size of a beach ball, had whisker-like long antennas extending from one side and each of its 1440 elliptical orbits around the Earth took about 98 minutes. Its launch marked the start of the Space Age, led directly to the creation of National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and kicked off a worldwide fascination with space travel. It also inspired a design aesthetic based on these rocket-propelled devices, which brought new shapes to furniture, lighting and other household items. Our Satellite collection (2010) – while not constructed of hermetically sealed aluminum-magnesium-titanium, as the Soviets’ satellite was – captures the spirit and design ethos of the time. The Satellite Chandelier has 24 antennae arms. UL Listed. Bulbs (not included): 24 x 25W candelabra. Made in China.
