Øivind Slaatto, 2021

The first version of the Patera pendant lamp dates from 2015. Spherical in shape, it was particularly suited to large volumes and high ceilings.

With this ovoid version, the Patera adapts to contemporary private interiors, smaller spaces and lower ceiling heights.

Like its big sister, the Patera Oval is based on the Fibonacci sequence, which is found everywhere in nature. Assembled by hand, it respects Louis Poulsen's historical DNA: whatever the angle, the light source placed in its center remains invisible to the eye, which is never dazzled.

With a generous diameter of 50 cm, the Patera Oval can be used as a central ceiling light or as a pendant lamp above a table. Its lighting is soft and multi-directional, with a more powerful downward flow. It can be used with or without a diffuser (easy to remove), to reduce the latter if necessary. 

Materials Shade: Cut matt PVC foil. Frame: White, opal, matt coated, Injection moulded polycarbonate. Suspension E-socket: White, opal, matt coated, Injection moulded polycarbonate. Suspension LED: Matt white, Die cast aluminum Diffuser plate: Injection moulded polycarbonate. 

Light source 1 x E27 or LED 42W 2700K/3000K (colour and lumen can be remotly adjust)

Cable 4 metters

Dimensions Ø50 x H36 cm

Øivind Slaatto

Øivind Slaatto (born 1978) is a promising Danish designer, recognised for his simple and poetic solutions. Nature is Øivind's most important source of inspiration. He also seeks to transfer characteristics such as rationality, logic and harmony to his designs.

Øivind has a master's degree from the Danish Design School and studied music prior to this at the Royal Danish Academy of Music. An appreciation for music permeates his approach to the design process. He understands that 'practice makes perfect', and constantly seeks to refine his solutions. In his own words, he wants his designs to be like a piece of music being played – which people experience as simple and light.

He has worked with everything from speakers and cars to furniture and light fixtures. Developing lighting solutions is a specialty area and a great passion for Øivind, who has a natural affinity for light and therefore seeks to optimise the experience of light and ambience.
