Designed in 1953 by Mathieu Matégot. This Satellite Pendant blends geometric formality with organic fluidity to create an entirely unique appearance. 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.
Crafted using 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 ways: cream white, mustard gold, ruby red, soft black and stone 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.
The Satellite Pendant is available in two sizes and works as well in multiples as it does individually.
