The Satellite Pendant of two sizes is designed 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, and is unique with its bulb all covered by perforated metal to exude an atmospheric light - creating a festive appearance. The interplay of light and shadow casted on walls and floors generate a dramatic feature in any dining room, hallway or restaurant. Hang the Satellite Pendant alone as a characteristic piece or in multiples to create a cloud of luminosity.

Designer info: Design is deep in our DNA
Gubi was founded in 1967 by Jacob and Sebastian's parents, Gubi and Lisbeth Olsen. They initially focused on producing Olsen's furniture designs and selling textiles to the retail sector. Eager to make their own mark, the sons opened a concept store and introduced fashion into the equation. In fact, they were amongst the first to import Prada and Helmut Lang to Denmark, returning their focus back to the family business in 2001.
Since then, they have transposed the original creative vision into a contemporary context, putting Gubi on the map as a global player on the design scene. In an ever-changing international landscape, it takes an enormous amount of drive and determination to keep chasing icons. It's that type of endless energy, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit which has catapulted Gubi into an iconic status all its own.
