Sputnik, the first artificial satellite to orbit Earth in 1957, is generally believed to have started the Space Age. The fascination with space exploration and technology has inspired the use of atomic motifs and abstract organic forms in design. The Sputnik silhouette quickly took off as a homage to this design trend and has been popular ever since.
Today’s versions come in a vast array of variations but the foundation stays the same: long arms bursting out like an explosion of light. The starburst look is great as a statement piece over a dining table, in an entryway, or even in a bedroom with tall ceilings.
