In partnership with Louis Poulsen, celebrated Islandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson has created a new, large-scale pendant, named OE Quasi.
The complex geometric shape of the OE Quasi is perceived differently depending on where the observer stands, something that allows endless interpretations and perspectives. The OE Quasi will brighten any space with its larger-than-life shape and its smooth and glare-free light. Geometrical shape of the shade is perfectly fitted inside the frame (20 vertices of shade matching the 20 faces of the frame’s shape).
