About this brand new furniture

"issued by GUBI, the Satellite Pendant was created in two sizes by Mathieu Matégot in 1953 with geometrical shapes and an organic shade to create outstanding sculptural aesthetics. 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. 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 colour options; midnight black, white cloud, shy cherry, venetian gold and rainy grey. The interplay of light and shadow casted on walls and floors generate a dramatic feature in any dining room, hallway or restaurant. It possesses the distinctive feature of Rigitulle, a technique and material invented by the designer himself. The lamp is unique with its bulb covered with perforated metal. Available in several sizes and in a range of 5 colors, the version presented here is 22 cm in diameter."
