Patera – A Natural Focal Point
Taking nature as his inspiration, the elite designer Øivind Slaatto has created a new and unusual light through a creative partnership with Louis Poulsen.
The Patera is a sculptural chandelier based on the Fibonacci sequence and is available in 23.6″ diameter with integrated LED and incandescent solutions. Patera is made of white synthetic material and the entire assembly process is carried out by hand. Patera is light and airy, making it simple to install in a great many settings.
“As a designer I try to learn from nature, never to imitate nature but learn some of the best principles and translate them into our technical sphere.”
– Øivind Slaatto.
Patera is described as a glowing sphere built up of small diamond-shaped cells. Each cell is carefully designed to capture light and to shield the light source from the viewing angles above 45 degrees. Each cell glows and creates a glare free downward directed light in all angles below 45 degrees.
Louis Poulsen is proud to present Patera to the design community for both the professional market and the private consumer.
