Medium satellite shade Design: Mathieu Matégot Inspired by the look of Asian lanterns, Satellite pendants were designed in 1953 and were the first lights to be made from a type of micro-perforated sheet metal known as “Rigitulle”. A material as delicate as lace which the designer used in many of his works. Light is filtered through a multitude of holes in the oblong shade creating mesmerising shadows giving the pendant its unique look. Influential Hungarian designer, Mathieu Matégot was one of the key players in the rise of contemporary design in the 1950’s. With meticulous attention to detail in the design and production of his creations, the designer captured the new sense of joy in the post-war period by working with perforated sheets of metal, folding, pleating and lacquering them in vibrant colours. His light and organic avant-garde designs have since gone on to become timeless icons in the same way as the Kangourou coffee table and Dédale shelf.
