Since Green Bird Press is based out of a mid-century modern house I felt the need to honor one of the great design teams of the twentieth century with our first collection. So I created magnesium plates featuring silhouettes based on the well-known furniture designs of Charles and Ray Eames. I'm finally getting around to expanding this and creating designs inspired by other famous Mid-Century designers.
The Sputnik or Satellite Chandelier is an iconic piece of mid-century modern design inspired by the first satellite to ever orbited the earth, the Soviet Union's Sputnik satellite launched in 1957. Soon after the launch of the Sputnik satellite, NASA was established in the United States and people became obsessed with all things space-related. Furniture and accents embraced this influence and thus the Sputnik chandelier was born and has survived 50+ years of popularity.
