The Sputnik chandelier is one of the most popular light fixture designs born of the mid century modern era. The Soviet Union's 1957 launch of Sputnik, the world's first artificial orbiting satellite, inspired a generation of space-age influenced home decor and lighting design. The characteristic look of each light fixture in this collection is a central core containing multiple single-bulb arms. Constructed commonly from brass, the fixtures are often found in mid century modern style spaces alongside medium tone wood finishes and retro colorful furniture. Today, the fixture persists also as a functional mid century touch providing ample light in kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms in other eclectic or modern styles.
Dutton Brown has worked to take this classic design to the next level by creating 3 sizes of Sputnik chandelier suitable for a variety of spaces and ceiling heights. More emphasis was placed on producing the fixtures in a variety of colors that go beyond the basic metallic finishes to make a bold, colorful statement in any space. With a growing number of colors available, because the fixtures are made-to-order, Dutton Brown also has the ability to customize finishes and colors for the core, arms, and sockets for each fixture to create truly unique lighting for your room.
