Patera Pendant 60cm

The Patera family came into being through a creative working relationship between Øivind Slaatto and Louis Poulsen. It is intended to serve as a modern chandelier – a lamp that ties the space together, making the room more welcoming and accommodating. The spherical pendant hovers as a majestic centrepoint in the room, spreading light in all directions. At first glance, it appears to be nothing but a white, perforated ball, but closer inspection reveals its detailed design, which features a host of circles, angles and holes.

Louis Poulsen’s Patera 600 pendant light has a calm, matte white surface and a sense of delicate, mathematical beauty. Designer Øivind Slaatto drew his inspiration from the Fibonacci sequence that appears in nature as spiral patterns: the pendant consists of diamond-shaped cells arranged in a form that resembles the seed patterns of sunflowers and pinecones. When lit, the cells glow in a fascinating manner and also prevent glare. The intricate structure and the vivid surface make Patera a modern chandelier that is perfect for high spaces.

Louis Poulsen

Established in Denmark more than 140 years ago, Louis Poulsen is an international manufacturer of designer lamps with an impressive range embracing iconic classics and innovative, contemporary designs, for private and professional use. Closely together with world-famous designers and architects such as Poul Henningsen, Arne Jacobsen and Verner Panton the company has created icons as the PH Artichoke and PH5. Behind every Louis Poulsen design is the story of its creation and the refinement of the designer's idea and vision of light – all in harmony with Louis Poulsen's lighting philosophy based on the principles developed by Poul Henningsen in the 1920s. The philosophy is founded on the concepts of function, comfort and ambience.
