Orbiter® Collection


The Orbiter Story

The art

Among the first and most impactful designs in 1967, Orbiter® defined the modern functional art that became the cornerstone and pathos of Robert Sonneman’s life work. A simple arc supports a single boom that moves in balance throughout a hemisphere. Exhibited in museums and galleries, the Orbiter® is an uncomplicated machine, so pure in its elements that the art of its simplicity has never been redefined more perfectly in the 45 years of its history.
