Sputnik Chandelier Lamp
On October 4, 1957, the Russians launched the world's first space satellite.The satellite, named "Sputnik 1" was a metal sphere with a diameter of 58 cm, a weight of 83.6 kg and 4 protruding antennae. The news broke all around the world like a bombshell. It was "the beginning of the space age".
On April 17, 1958, the World Exhibition opened in Brussels with the "Atomium", an enormous 102m high structure, as its central feature. The 9 metal spheres, each with a diameter of 18m, were linked by means of connecting tunnels 23m in length. The "Atomiun" represents a metal crystal 165 billion times its normal size. Once inside this gigantic model, visitors can use the connecting tunnels to move from one sphere to another.
Around the end of the 50s and the beginning of the 60s, the Sputnik and the Atomium proved to be a source of inspiration. The result is the Sputnik Pendant Light by Nuevo.
