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.
