The Sputnik chair is directly inspired from the satellite of the same name. Simple, effective and timeless were the main criterias for this piece. The Sputnik chair is voluntarily rude in its aspect and goes straight to the point. The simplicity of the used materials focuses on perfect union of functionality and aesthetics. Made out of hand-cast aluminum and steel, the chair demonstrate how basic materials can be used with elegance.
Besides the political aspect and the race to space, the only function of the Sputnik satellite was to send “bips” to the earth. The Sputnik chair was created with the same leitmotiv and all the superfluous were set aside.
Its 4 asymmetric feet were directly inspired from the satellite antenna and ensure a flawless contact with the ground. As simple as it looks, the chair is a real technical challenge in its making. The main difficulty was to find the perfect blend between elegance and robustness. With a diameter of 58 cm the Sputnik chair uses the exact same dimensions as the satellite for the aluminum seating. The asymmetric incurved feet are made out of steel to ensure a flawless solidity.
