The pendant is composed of two contrasting yet interlinked geometric shapes. The outer layer is a rigid aluminium frame in the shape of an icosahedron with 20 triangular faces. Seemingly floating within the frame, is the inner form, a white polycarbonate reflector in the geometry of a dodecahedron with 12 pentagonal faces.
I wanted to create a product that doesn’t produce any waste and that, like many of Louis Poulsen’s products, is something people will keep forever.

The complex geometric shape of the OE Quasi is perceived differently depending on where the observer stands, something that allows endless interpretations and perspectives. With its larger-than-life shape, the OE Quasi will brighten and visually interact with any space while creating smooth and glare-free light.
