Great reasons to buy the Louis Poulsen OE Quasi Pendant Light

  • Designed by world-renowned Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson, the OE Quasi Light is composed of two contrasting yet interlinked geometric shapes.
  • Due to the arrangement of the shades, the light remains completely glare-free from any angle.
  • Aiming for longevity, the design of the product enables replacement and recycling of parts.

Why you'll love this pendant light

The striking OE Quasi pendant is the result of a new collaboration between Louis Poulsen and the artist Olafur Eliasson for Danish lighting brand Louis PoulsenFascinated by geometry, Eliasson wanted to create a spherical lamp, inspiring the idea of a dodecahedron (12 pentagonal faces) of polycarbonate, serving as a reflector, embedded in an icosahedron (20 triangular faces) of aluminium.

12 LEDs embedded in the inner vertices of the geometric frame guide along the inner edges and create an even illumination towards the reflector in the centre of the lamp. This layered white reflector emits the light spherically back into the room, resulting in a soft, glare-free uniform ambience that is perceived differently depending on where the observer stands, something that allows endless interpretations and perspectives.

The name OE Quasi Light refers to the geometrical shape of the light. The Icosahedron and Dodecahedrons possess a 'dual polyhedra' symmetry (meaning every face on the one corresponds to a vertex on the other) which is also found in quasi-crystals. Created with sustainability in mind, the aluminium used to create the outer icosahedron geometric form is 90% recycled, while the other materials used are entirely recyclable and reusable. It can be dismantled, so that each element can be reused or correctly sorted at the end of life.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
