Gubi has reissued the fascinating Satellite pendant light Mathieu Matègot designed in 1953. The lantern-like pendant is an application of Rigitulle, a technique and material invented by the French designer himself: a sheet of metal is bent and folded to form an oblong shape. The perforated and pleated metal shade creates an illusion of soft fabric and filters light in a pleasant, festive manner. Satellite has a unique, colourful design that catches the eye immediately. Its name is Matégot’s tribute to the scientific progress in France after the Second World War.
