DESIGNER

Olafur Eliasson

Danish-Icelandic artist and designer Olafur Eliasson was born in Copenhagen in 1967. Eliasson studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts from 1989 to 1995, after which he moved to Berlin and founded Studio Olafur Eliasson. The eponymous collective comprises craftspeople, art historians, archivists and even cooks who share Eliasson’s views on the exploration of movement, perception, and sense of self.

Eliasson exhibits all over the world and touches on pressing topics such as arts education, policy-making and sustainability. Having showcased his creations in South Korea and France, Eliasson is renowned for thinking outside the confines of the traditional gallery space. His 2008 public art project, ‘New York City Waterfalls,’ saw four artificial waterfalls installed around the New York City riverside, while the ‘Your Rainbow Panorama’ installation graced the rooftop of Denmark’s ARoS Aarhus Art Museum from 2006 to 2011.

Eliasson’s contribution to the arts and environmental awareness is incomparable. He taught as Professor Eliasson at the University of the Arts in Berlin, authored books, measured the impact of global warming on Iceland’s glaciers in ‘The Glacier Melt Series’ and even launched a social enterprise with engineer Fredrik Ottesen. Founded in 2012, each sale of a ‘Little Sun’ product brings affordable, clean energy to over one billion people in the world living without electricity.

The OE Quasi Pendant Light presents a perfect balance of artistic expression and sustainability, exquisitely designed by renowned artist Olafur Eliasson for Louis Poulsen.

A desirable statement piece for contemporary living and dining spaces alike, it is described as a ‘living organism, a visual representation of turning light into life; continuously changing form based on the movements of the observer.’
