Called Sputnik, the collection is hand-made and each piece is unique.

Here's a tiny bit of text from Heykoop:


Sputnik is a papermacheed bubble trapped in a metal frame. The freehand production process determines the shape. The outcome is that they are all a bit different and so become family.

Sputnik carries an energy-saving bulb. Once lit up it reminds you of looking at full moon.
