Cosmos Shade Sputnik-style light fitting at Dutch By Design


If you want this, you'll have to be quick, as the Cosmos Shade at Dutch By Design is reduced, because it's about to be discontinued.

It's another take on the classic 1960s Sputnik light fitting, with this version of the space-inspired light fitting offering up a whopping 24 bulbs on those chrome arms, which in turn are fitted to a central 'ball'.

The whole thing is around 65cm high and 31.3cm wide, usually selling for £145. But as it's the last couple, £85 is the price if you're quick.

60s-style Neptune pendant at BHS

The latest lighting collection from BHS has obvious retro influences. We've already shown you the 70s-esque Mason mushroom lamp, while – as perhaps could be guessed from its name – this Neptune pendant looks to 60s Space Age style. 

The steel pendant is a variation on the classic sputnik look, with eight satellite arms and lights coming off the central ball. 

As you'd expect from the store, it's reasonably priced too. The pendant costs £100.

Kare Design Sputnik Hanging Lamp discounted at Achica


We have mentioned Achica a few times – it’s an online ‘club’ that does short-term clearance sales of interesting brands. Indeed, they’ve got a clearance of Design House Stockholm right now, which is well worth a look. But we’ve picked out something from elsewhere on the site – this Kare Design Sputnik Hanging Lamp.

It’s a stunning, 1960s-inspired centrepiece for a room, made of chrome-plated metal with 20x 20 watt bulbs providing the light in the room. Bulbs, you’ll not be suprised to hear, are not included.

The entire structure is about 54cm high and around 53cm wide and usually sells for £249. But for the next day or so, you can get one from Achica for £149. So if you fancy a Sputnik, don’t hang about. Note that you do have to register at Achica to enter the site, but it only takes seconds and is free.
