Patera Pendant - Four Sizes
- The Designer
- The Maker
Øivind Slaatto is fascinated by nature, and this is where he finds his inspiration. Particularly, he is fond of the Fibonacci sequence and other basic mathematical principles—like seen in the sunflower, cauliflower, seashells and the snail. The Fibonacci sequence was also his inspiration for Patera. "My ultimate goal was to create a three-dimensional Sudoku. It was an extremely mathematical assignment. In fact, it's the most complex light I have ever made ... I think it has a certain poetry about it, and my aim was to construct a modern crystal chandelier. I hope people will feel inspired to move around it. I hope it generates life." (Øivind Slaatto)

Øivind has a master's degree from the Danish Design School and studied music prior to this at the Royal Danish Academy of Music. An appreciation for music permeates his approach to the design process. He understands that 'practice makes perfect', and constantly seeks to refine his solutions. In his own words, he wants his designs to be like a piece of music being played—which people experience as simple and light.
He has worked with everything from speakers and cars to furniture and light fixtures. Developing lighting solutions is a specialty area and a great passion for Øivind, who has a natural affinity for light and therefore seeks to optimize the experience of light and ambience.
