Patera Pendant

Brand Louis Poulsen
Designer Øivind Slaatto
Distributor Danish Red

In 2015, the Patera pendant designed by Øivind Slaatto launched as a modern take on the classic chandelier, bringing a glowing focal point and soft, dynamic illumination to contemporary spaces. The Patera’s glare-free, 360-degree illumination is the result of an intricate design with differently positioned cells that bathe surrounding spaces, people, and objects in natural, even, and flattering light. The form is beautiful to behold from all angles, its Fibonacci sequence-based structure providing a different impression from every vantage point.
“My ultimate goal was to create a three-dimensional Sudoku. It was an extremely mathematical assignment. In fact, it’s the most complex light I have ever made … I think it has a certain poetry about it, and my aim was to construct a modern crystal chandelier. I hope people will feel inspired to move around it. I hope it generates life.” (Øivind Slaatto) At once sophisticated and daring, the reimagined chandelier is a dazzling addition to modern or traditional spaces open to new twists on classic concepts. A single Patera creates a luminous focal point. A series of them – staggered or aligned, in one size or all three – creates the sense of magic we feel when we look up at the starry sky.
