The Sputnik Chair is directly inspired from the Sputnik satellite. The world’s first artificial satellite was about the size of a beach ball (58cm, or 22.8inches, in diameter). Harow achieved to use the exact diameter of the satellite for the seat. As simple as it looks, it is a real technical challenge in its making. Its 4 asymmetric feet reflect the satellite antenna which are very thin. It was a big challenge to make them ensure a flawless contact with the ground. Simple, crude and made out of steel, the chair also demonstrates how basic materials can be used with elegance.
