Named after the successful, Czechoslovak science satellites that orbited the Earth in the 1960s as part of the Interkosmos programme. The flat cylinder of blown glass with the distinctive, three-pronged metal structure inside bears a resemblance to a small space station. Because of the tinted opal glass, the object takes on a markedly different aesthetic when the light source is turned on or off.
Hand-blown glass disk with polished brass construction inside. Three tints of glass: orange, green, smoky grey.
Light source E27 LED 15W, 230V.
Dimensions: diameter 56cm, height 40cm, weight 15kg.
