Have you ever looked at a chandelier and thought to yourself “that kind of looks like Sputnik”? You’re not the only one. There are actually quite a few such light fixtures. It seems the first artificial earth satellite inspired a lot of designers. It was launched back in 1957 and although it fell back into the atmosphere just a few months after that, it had a huge impact on everything that was to come. Today we’re looking at a few Sputnik light fixtures that you could actually own if you’re into the this style.
This is the VINLUZ Sputnik Chandelier. It has eight arms, each with a light bulb at the end, all pre-wired and pre-threaded. They’re all connected to a central ball and have this beautiful golden finish that gives the chandelier a very elegant and refined look and also helps it stay trendy. The hanging height can be adjusted per your request which is a nice detail that increases the versatility of this piece.
The Dellemade XD00859 Sputnik Chandelier also has eight arms but they’re all horizontal and parallel to each other which makes this fixture a bit different from other similar models. It’s easy to install and all the arms are already wired and ready to be screwed into the cylinder-shaped central piece. The chandelier is 31” (80 cm) wide and 26.7” (68 cm) long. The height is adjustable.
This Dellemade Sputnik Chandelier only has six arms but that doesn’t make it any less eye-catching. In fact, this helps to highlight its simplicity. The design is modern and minimalist and the height is adjustable which makes this chandelier a great fit for a variety of different spaces including living rooms, hallways, offices and more. It measures 29.5” in diameter and uses six E26 bulbs.
What’s really cool about it is that you can adjust the angle on the arms to create the perfect combo based on your needs.
The Jazava Sputnik Chandelier has no less than 12 arms which makes it best for large living rooms, dining areas and big spaces in general. It features a modern-industrial design and can be installed on both sloped and flat ceilings. The dimensions of this chandelier are as follows: 31.89” diameter, 15” fixture height and 47.24” total height.
The mirrea Sputnik chandelier is even more impressive, featuring a total of 18 arms, each with a light bulb at the end. It measures 37.40” in diameter and the height at which it hangs is adjustable although a high ceiling is required considering the proportions of this fixture.

This is the OYI Sputnik chandelier and, as you can see, it has a pretty special design.

The Dellemade DD00134 Sputnik Chandelier offers a different interpretation of the same concept. It features 12 lights that forms branches in all directions starting from the center. They’re surrounded by clear glass globes that create a diffuse light source that’s pleasant to look at yet powerful.

The TZOE Sputnik Chandelier is really cool in its own special way. It has a mid-century modern design which gives it a lot of character and it’s really easy to install.
