louis poulsen reveal oe quasi light, a new pendant light designed by olafur eliasson at milan design week 2019.
louis poulsen, world-renowned danish lighting brand, reveal their collaboration with danish-icelandic artist, olafur eliasson, on a new, large-scale pendant light at milan design week. inspired by the relation between mathematical forms, the oe quasi light uses geometry to shape light and reinforces louis poulsen and eliasson’s shared idea that good light = good life.
bright led lights are embedded at the vertices of the aluminum 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.
“i’m very excited to bring my longtime interest in geometry and light into this collaboration with louis poulsen to create the oe quasi light. what distinguishes it from so many lamps is that it shines in towards the core, from which the light is reflected back out onto the surroundings. in one form, the lamp combines precision in design with quality atmospheric lighting,” states olafur eliasson, artist.
