In partnership with Louis Poulsen, world-renowned Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson has created a new, large-scale pendant. OE Quasi Light 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.
Our challenge was to depict the intricate details of the lamp and its various surfaces whilst creating a cinematic aesthetic by moving through the object and exploring its seemingly endless interesting angles. The film aims to leave the viewer with the same sense of wonder and awe that one would experience when physically encountering this exquisite structure for the first time.
