 Artist Olafur Eliasson (Iceland/Denmark), born in 1967, works in a wide range of media, including installation, painting, sculpture, photography, and film. Since 1997, his solo shows have appeared in major museums around the world. As part of his practice, he engages with arts education, policy-making, and issues of sustainability and climate change. Eliasson’s projects in public space include The New York City Waterfalls, 2008, Your rainbow panorama, 2006–11; Ice Watch, 2014; and Fjordenhus, Vejle, 2018.

In 2012 Eliasson founded the social business Little Sun that produces solar lamps for off-grid communities, and in 2014 he and architect Sebastian Behmann founded Studio Other Spaces, an office for art and architecture.

Eliasson’s interest in polyhedrons, spheres and curves – the ongoing geometric investigations he has pursued for years with his studio team – stems from a desire to create alternatives to the dominant orthogonal thinking of modern architecture, art, and design, to find forms that can help counteract the numbing of our senses. This concern for the emotional and physical effects of our surroundings is at the core of the OE Quasi that Eliasson has conceived for Louis Poulsen.
