the raimond lamp, designed by raimond puts, is a perfect sphere of mathematical ingredients punctuated by tiny led lights. looking at the lamp feels like staring into the soft glow of a starry night. in 2010 raimond puts won the best woonproduct of 2010 award (sanoma woon awards) with the raimond light.
about thirty years ago raimond puts began building models from cheap materials like strip–iron, mosquito nets & paper. he became attracted to the challenges of making geometric shapes & models. over the years he has experimented with all sorts of shapes & materials. he searches for solutions to the practical problems he encounters with an angel-like patience & determination. over the years his constructions have become more refined and by making use of the LED-technique, raimond has found an extremely productive combination. In his work he searched for the ideal integration of beauty & functionality. in his designs he always searched for the essence & creates from minimal means, maximum results.
puts was not only interested in the exterior results. his objects stand as models for a world in which everything is connected to everything else. everything fits perfectly. this conceptual simplicity inspired him to continue searching for newer constructions. in them, he found peace & continuous surprises.
