Alouette
by Dystil

Retail price: $
Status:

The Alouette Chandelier is based on the unique design of Canada’s Alouette satellite, launched into space almost fifty years ago on September 29, 1962.

While it is still in orbit to this day, it has been shut down long ago. In this context, the original shape and proportions are preserved while the satellite itself is re-imagined and repurposed. The Alouette chandelier makes a striking visual statement. The open/closed nature of the outer shell creates a spectacular lighting effect, producing beautiful light with a spectacular shadow pattern. The history and meaning of the Alouette satellite itself gives the lamp meaning and context.
