"LED it be"

Raimond Puts

The Moooi Team is truly sorry to hear of the loss of Raimond Puts. Raimond will always be remembered by Moooi as 'The man who brought the starry sky into our homes'.

If there is some sort of thread that travelled through the life of Raimond Puts (1937 - 2012) then it must be that of technical engineering and prime numbers. Born on a prime number, 3-7-1937, Raimond was schooled as a mechanical engineer and accidently became a self-taught designer. He developed his talent for machinery at a very early age when he played around with his Meccano toy box. Science and particularly its roots in nature has fascinated him ever since. Nature and physics, simplicity in complexity, not as opposites, but two halves of a whole. In the end all can be derived from nature, Raimond's biggest inspiration.

Inspired by nature and the Geodesic Dome by Buckminster Fuller, Raimond started 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 searched for solutions to the practical problems he encounters with an angel-like patience & determination. Over the years his constructions became more refined and by making use of the LED-technique, Raimond 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 & created with minimal means, achieving maximum results.

He 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.

In 2010 Raimond Puts won the best Woonproduct of 2010 Award (Sanoma Woon Awards) with the Raimond light.

Raimond by Raimond Puts




Solid Oak Foot with leather straps, Stainless Steel 304 (indoor use, not resistant to marine conditions) and PMMA

The intricate spheres of Raimond transport the electrical current. The LED terminals then join these paths to create an atmospheric ambiance. The transparant lenses are specially detailed to spread warm white light in every direction.

Please refer to the manual and safety instructions for more information on installation

Stainless Steel 304 (indoor use, not resistant to marine conditions)

Stainless steel gets the "stainless" portion of its name from its chromium oxide coating that resists staining, pitting and rusting. But although it holds up better than other metals, stainless steel is not impervious to rust. Time and certain environmental conditions like salt air will slowly erode stainless steel's protective coating. When the chloride in the aerosolized salt in salt air lands on the surface of the stainless steel, it breaks down the chromium oxide.
