Moooi Raimond Tensegrity

The Raimond Tensegrity floor lamp was designed by Raimond Puts for Moooi with the intention of bringing the starry night sky indoors. Inspired by the principle of “tensegrity” (tensional integrity; floating compression), Raimond Tensegrity embodies a perfect balance between push & pull forces. The light’s ethereal grace belies its intricacy as it is actually two stainless steel grid spheres one inside the other separated at each junction by a purpose built transparent LED which also doubles as an isolator. The construction requires some serious maths and Raimond spent years perfecting the idea and it wasn’t until the advent of the latest highly reliable LED lenses that it became possible. The Raimond Tensegrity is available in two sphere diameters 89 and 61 and their wonderful twinkle is a lasting tribute to a man whose legacy can be found amongst the stars.

Raimond  Puts was born in 1937 and if a thread could be said to weave through his life then it would be that of technical engineering. The machine designer he became developed this talent at a very early age when playing with his adored meccano, building elaborate and fabulous mechanisms. During his technical education he trained in the craft of metalwork and a new world opened up for him. He began creating models from inexpensive materials like strip iron, mosquito nets and paper, experimenting with all sorts of shapes and techniques, searching for solutions to practical problems with a zen like patience and determination. Over the years his constructions become more refined and by making use of LEDs Raimond found an extremely productive combination, the ideal integration of beauty and functionality. His simple, beautiful designs stand as models for a world in which everything is connected to everything else, where everything fits perfectly. Raimond died in 2012.

For more than fifteen years Moooi has inspired and seduced the world with sparkling and innovative designs. The venture founded in 2001 by Marcel Wanders and Casper Vissers is named after the Dutch word for beautiful but with an extra ‘O’ for added loveliness, uniqueness and value. The core strengths of both men continue to complement each other perfectly, Marcel, the obstinate, passionate designer with a nose for business, and Casper, the driven marketeer with a keen eye for design. In addition to work by Wanders the Moooi portfolio contains work from other internationally recognised designers. The style of the collection is exclusive, daring, playful, exquisite and based on the belief that design is a question of love. Moooi takes pride in producing timeless objects of beauty which posses the rare character of antiques combined with the freshness of modern times. This fusion has created a brand that believes it’s purpose is the design and production of contemporary icons.
