Patera Pendant Lamp



Design Oivind Slaatto, 2015
White synthetic material
Made in Denmark by Louis Poulsen

"Patera was born of my fascination with the Fibonacci sequence. You can find the spiral pattern wherever you look in nature - in the seed formation in sunflowers and pine cones..." relates Oivind Slaatto regarding the source of inspiration for his new light.

This natural focal point and ball-shaped pendant floats like a majestic focal point in the room, spreading light in all directions. Its detailed design features a host of circles, angles and holes. Patera emits a soft, pleasant light, whose secret lies in its intricate design: the light consists of a variety of differently positioned cells, which ensure that the correct angles are applied to the visor lines of the light and guard against all unpleasant glare. At the same time, the structure staggers the visual center of Patera, consistently providing new impressions of the light when viewed from different angles.

The pleasant light emitted by Patera suits a variety of contexts: everything from dining table settings, halls and entrances, to reception areas and meeting rooms. Patera illuminates people around it in a credible, natural light, without generating inappropriate shadows on their faces. Stylistically, the light is simultaneously simple and refined, which means that it blends seamlessly into most interior design set-ups, modern and classical alike.

Patera is available in a diameter of 23.6" (600 mm), and is made of white synthetic material. The entire assembly process is carried out by hand. Patera is light and airy, making it simple to install in a great many settings. Patera is supplied with an E26 fitting, which allows the use of a variety of light sources, including LED. The light is also available with an integrated LED solution.
