Sputnik Mid Century Modern Table
The war was cold, the year was 1957 and the Soviet Union launched the first earth orbiting satellite called the Sputnik. The shape of the satellite was an indication that the zeitgeist of mid century modern styling was permeating the functional design of emerging technologies of the time. Through its clear glass top the splayed legs of the Sputnik table communicate the functional design of the modernism era.
Making the Sputnik Dining Table
You may be familiar with the Sputnik lamp. Like the lamp, the Sputnik table takes its design inspiration from technological modernism. The inspiration of the Sputnik table is seen in the shape of the 1957 Sputnik 1 satellite. The center of the Sputnik 1 satellite consists of a round “joint” with 4 large antennae extending outward. Correctly portraying the antennae, each end of the Sputnik table features 2 external legs reaching down and outward and 2 external arms reaching up and outward from a central orb joint. A center brace extends the length of the table from joint to joint on either end. Crafted of Solid Ash entirely by hand using traditional wood joinery methods, The Sputnik Table is one mid century modern icon paying homage to another.
Sputnik is Pop-art brilliance in form. The solid wood frame is hand assembled and finished. Rubber suction cups affix the frame to the clear, tempered plate glass top.
