Sputnik by Visionnaire

Visionnaire have been shortlisted for Lighting Piece Award in The International Design and Architecture Awards.

The Sputnik lamps are the creation of Visionnaire’s unique and innovatively designed lighting family. Made from a number of rhomboidal parts, Visionnaire has produced an “origami” metal composition for the Sputnik lighting pieces.


The design for Sputnik was inspired by retro-futurism. This modular lamp has been made with a large-scale brass mesh which underlines the strong link and connection with the world of Space Age fashion. The name itself is a reference to the famous spacecraft that inaugurated the Space Age. Considering this along with the translation meaning ‘companion’, Sputnik is to be a propitiatory name that reminds us that it is essential to have big dreams and ask important questions. The intricate and innovative design for these pieces pushes the boundaries of what is expected from lighting design, elevating this to the crossover of a collection of art forms.


Visionnaire sets a style – creates a new language – that has a character of unexpected invention, formulated to reveal an expressive universe that knows no thematic bounds and places no restrictions on experimental investigation. The force of this way of interpreting an entrepreneurial mission lies in the ability to forge beyond limits, to extend the company’s action over the threshold of the possible, fulfilling desires and visions previously relegated to the realm of the unachievable. Visionnaire loves complexity, finding solutions through extreme research, bringing together distant worlds, and combining the multiple forms of art with the positive excitement found in the dimension of dreams.


The modular design of brass, curved rhombus shapes has been uniquely formed to add a sense of futuristic opulence to each room. Constant technological research, experimentation with materials, the juxtaposition and mixing of elements, and the hands of the Visionnaire craftsmen that test, perfect and define a new material solution: these are the factors that go into every single Visionnaie product in order to make it unique and inimitable, yet reproducible for their collections.

The new Visionnaire collection is called Beauty. Beauty is a word with an intense, multifaceted meaning. Besides indicating an outlook of positive energy and hope, the contemporary beauty narrated by Visionnaire sums up an attitude, that of creating extraordinary, unique projects and objects.
