The Patera Light:
The Patera light was inspired by the Fibonacci sequence as it appears in nature. The Fibonacci spiral occurs naturally in biology again and again, from seashells to pine cones and sunflowers… the pattern occurs so frequently that it’s been attributed an almost esoteric quality.
The angled diamond shaped cells of the Patera light creates a soft even glow in all directions whilst guarding against direct glare. The light it emits is reminiscent of Poul Henningsen’s early work who actively tried to recreate the soft glow of gas lighting with his electric light designs. Designer Øivind Slaatto regards Henningsen as a spiritual mentor and would say of his creation, “Patera is intended to serve as a modern chandelier – a light that unifies the space and makes any room a more human place to spend time in.” The Patera pendant light was released in 2015 by @LouisPoulsen.
