Emil Stejnar for Rupert Nikoll Brass & Crystal Sputnik Snowflake Chandelier 1950
Space Age era snowflake Sputnik chandelier designed by Emil Stejnar for Rupert Nikoll, Vienna, Austria made in the 1950 period. Made of brass, fully covered with Austrian crystal balls and glass flowers. Beautiful design for a great light experience. Twelve E14 light sockets. Very good vintage original 100% condition without damages and fully functional. This Sputnik chandelier is one of the most celebrated ceiling lamps of the 20th century, is immediately recognisable by its radiating glass flowers that create dancing shadows when lit. It inspired a generation of Space Age era designers to create their own futuristic lamps, yet the golden brass stems and intricate glass details, remind us as much of Stejnar’s devotion to the magic of the cosmos as it does to Space Age lighting design.
