Patera Oval 500
Patera Oval 500
A new minimalist pendant – Ideal for contemporary spaces
The classic, circular Patera was designed by the Danish designer Øivind Slaatto in 2015. In 2021, the Patera Oval is introduced as an ellipsoid pendant to complete the Patera family and bring it into new applications where ceiling heights are limited, or a flat circular form is preferred.
Patera Oval is beautiful to behold from all angles, with its Fibonacci sequence-based structure providing a different impression from every vantage point. The pendant is made up of diamond-shaped cells where each cell is carefully designed to reflect glare-free light when viewed from an angle of above 40 degrees – while emitting a 360-degree illumination that bathes surrounding spaces, people and objects in a natural, even and pleasing light.

Øivind Slaatto , 2015
Danish designer Øivind Slaatto holds a master’s degree from the Danish Design School. Prior to this, he studied music at the Royal Danish Academy of Music. An appreciation for music as well as nature permeates his approach to the design process. As recognised as he is for his poetic design solutions, he also seeks to bring qualities such as rationality, logic and harmony to his designs.
Slaatto wants his designs to be perceived as simple and light – like a piece of music being played. He has designed everything from speakers and cars to furniture and light fixtures. Designing lighting, however, is his great passion. His natural affinity with light leads him continually to enhance the experience of light and the ambience it creates.
In 1924, Poul Henningsen created his influential Paris lamp for Louis Poulsen, and the origin of how we still design to shape light can directly be traced back to his views on the dualities of design and light.
Founded in 1874, Louis Poulsen is a Danish lighting manufacturer born out of the Scandinavian design tradition where form follows function. The function and design of our products are tailored to reflect and support the rhythm of natural light. Every detail in the design has a purpose. Every design starts and ends with light.
We believe in passionate craftsmanship that produces quality lighting and design products that are pleasing to the eye and to the light.
In close partnership with designers, architects and other talents like Poul Henningsen, Arne Jacobsen, Verner Panton, Øivind Slaatto, Alfred Homann, Oki Sato and Louise Campbell, we have established ourselves as one of the key global suppliers of architectural and decorative lighting. Defying traditional product categories, our products serve and span the professional and private lighting markets for both indoor and outdoor applications.
