The Quasi Light

View all 9 Photos

Lighting as work of art.

Since 1874, Danish lighting brand Louis Poulsen has been producing purposeful designs that not only celebrate light, but also inspire the viewer. Louis Poulsen’s latest product is no exception. Made in a collaboration with renowned Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, the OE Quasi Light Louis Poulsen stuns with a fascinating design. The lamp encapsulates both the brand’s and Eliasson’s belief in the concept of “good light = good life.”

Drawing inspiration from the link between different mathematical forms, the large-scale pendant light features two geometric shapes in a symbiotic relationship. Made from aluminum, the outer frame has an Icosahedron shape with 20 facets and 12 vertices. The interior object seems to float inside the aluminum layer. Shaped like a dodecahedron, this polycarbonate element has 12 facets and 20 vertices. LEDs on the interior of the vertices direct the light towards the white laminae at the core of the lamp. Thus, the light appears differently, depending on the point of view.

Organic and polished at the same time, the OE Quasi Light Louis Poulsen mesmerizes with its multi-layered design. The intriguing concept marks the continuation of Olafur Eliasson’s years of research into geometry and engineering. “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,” explains Olafur Eliasson.

Apart from its imposing presence, the pendant light also features an eco-friendly, sustainable build. The aluminum frame is 90% recycled, while the other materials are easily recyclable or reusable. Plus, Louis Poulsen has made the OE Quasi Light with replaceable parts to guarantee the lamp’s durability. OE Quasi Light will make its debut at Milan Design Week 2019, from 9-14 April.
