The Raimond R43 lamp: Perfect spheres of mathematical ingredients punctuated by tiny LED lights. The transparent lenses are specially detailed to spread warm white light in every direction. Looking at the light feels like staring into the soft glow of a starry night. Into the essence. Inspired by the geodesic dome, designed by Buckminster Fuller, the Raimond lights are the result of almost forty years of research and dedication of mechanical engineer and self-taught designer Raimond Puts (1937 – 2012). Raimond Puts was not only intrigued by the shape of the geodesic dome, but also with the mystery of prime numbers. It’s no coincidence that the dimension of all Raimond lights resemble a prime number. The result of mathematical perfection, that brings the starry night sky into your home.

Moooi Raimond R43 Suspension Lamp Designed by:
- Raimond Puts , 2007
Netherlands, 1937 - 2012
From a very early age, Raimond Puts began playing around with his Meccano toy box, which sparked his interest in engineering and machinery. He pursued his dreams in this field and was trained in the craft of metalwork, and owing to this, a new world opened up for him.
About thirty years ago he 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.
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 & continous surprises.
In 2010 Raimond Puts won the best Woonproduct of 2010 Award (Sanoma Woon Awards) with the Raimond light.
