Why you'll love this pendant light

The Patera pendant light was originally designed by Øivind Slaatto for Danish lighting brand Louis Poulsen. The Patera takes inspiration from the mathematical Fibonacci sequence which gives the light it's swirling, seamless design. Øivind states that his "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.”

The pendant is 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. Below 45 degrees, the fields are open to direct light downwards and a small amount of light is also sent upwards to illuminate the ceiling.
