Satellite by Quentin de Coster for the Van Den Weghe ITEMS collection, is a handsome and very well considered, illuminated sculptural beauty. The lamp was designed and produced in 2016, as part of the Van Den Weghe’s collection, where architects and designers are called upon to engage in an array of collaborations with their celebrated baby, stone. At the centre of their work, lies this incredibly beautiful and naturally illuminous ability to showcase their stone and marble in each work.
Designed as a minimal lamp exploring the harmony that emanates from the collection of basic cylinders, Belgium-based Coster has envisioned something really special in the structured Satellite lamp. His practice of industrial design, product design and specialised creative direction projects, sees his ethos of creating daily gestures and needs that become thoughtful moments and experiences, a reality. Available in black and white marble, using LED technology, this piece is a classic, quite literally, set in stone.
