30 Inch Astra Sputnik Satellite Pendant Light Chandelier Gold
Sputnik lights were designed as early as the 1950's during the early Space Age era and feature the design of the atoms (for a comparable design, see the Atomium in Brussels Belgium, the Sputnik Starburst Chandelier at the Palm Springs Desert Museum and the most famous of them all: the J.&L. Lobmeyr chandeliers at the Met Opera in New York). Around the end of the 'fifties and the beginning of the sixties', the Sputnik and the Atomium proved to be a source of inspiration. The result is the classic Astra, an exquisite Sputnik Satellite Chandelier. A fusion of sculpture and lamp, combined with the clean, open lines of a mid-century aesthetics, this light fixture is an ideal complement to any living room, bedroom or when suspended over the dining table in the dining room. Take a look at our last picture which shows the Astra Chandelier installed in a New York City loft; simply amazing! This stylish pendant light fixtures provides a striking focal point in any space drawing the eye upward and setting a tone of sophisticated yet dramatic style.
