Named after the first satellite to take living creatures into space (and return them alive), this piece is half-table, half-planter.
A gorgeous new table design by Russian design studio Plan-S23 takes its inspiration from the 1960 Soviet satellite Sputnik 5. Known in Russia as Korabl-Sputnik 2, which not only carried the first dogs into space, but also transported a variety of plants. Designer Max Scherbakov’s table is its own miniature version of Sputnik 5, minus the dogs: It launches plant life through a marble table and into your living room.
