Louis Poulsen, world-renowned Danish lighting brand, reveal their collaboration with Danish-Icelandic artist, Olafur Eliasson,on a new, large-scale pendant lightat Milan Design Week. Inspired by the relation between mathematical forms, the OE Quasi Lightuses geometry to shape light and reinforces. Louis Poulsen and Eliasson’s shared idea that good light= good life.
The light is composed of two contrasting geometric shapes, nested inside each other.The outer layer, a rigid aluminium frame, is in the shape of an Icosahedron (a formpossessing 20 faces and 12 vertices), while the inner layer, in the shape of a dodecahedron (a formfeaturing 12 facesand 20 vertices) seemingly floats inside, reflecting the lightin a spherical light distribution.
Bright LED lights are embedded at thevertices of the aluminium icosahedron, directing the light towards the lamp’s core:a white, inset pentagonal laminae made from polycarbonate.The light’s complex geometric shape is perceived differently depending on where the observer stands, creating endless interpretations and perspectives.
Finish: Clear lacquered, pickled aluminium. Matt white reflector.
