Satellite Pendant Light
The Satellite Pendant of two sizes is designed by Mathieu Matelot in 1953 with geometrical shapes and an organic shade to create outstanding sculptural aesthetics. The name, Satellite, was given by Matelot 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 color 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 cast on walls and floors generate a dramatic feature in any dining room, hallway or restaurant. Hang the Satellite Pendant alone as a character piece or in multiples to create a cloud of luminosity.
