Mesmerizing Raimond Tensegrity Floor Lamp Features A LED-Studded Wireframe Globe Hovering Over Its Legs
Moooi has unveiled a new addition to its best-selling Raimond line of lamps. Called the Raimond Tensegrity Floor Lamp, it’s the first floor model for the erstwhile pendant range, giving folks the option of a non-hanging fixture that still bears the line’s well-loved aesthetic.
Originally designed by the late Raimond Puts and modified for production by Ox-ID, the “tensegrity” name is explained as a portmanteau, combining tensional integrity and floating compression. Yes, I don’t know what either of those terms mean in the context of a luxury lighting appliance either, but this thing sure is a whole lot of pretty, with an unconventional look that can spice up even the blandest interiors.
The Raimond Tensegrity Floor Lamp consists of a wooden stand and a wireframe globe that appears to hover slightly above it. It uses five oak sticks for the stand, held together by an invisible force in a seemingly random arrangement, with the globe consisting of several layers of wireframe that appear equally chaotic in their assembly. Tiny LED lights adorn several of the intersections of the stainless steel wires, creating a majestic sight that resembles a starry night sky, lined with space gases, when lit up in the dark.
If you want a floor lamp that will impress whether in the dark or in plain sight, there are few that can draw attention better than the Raimond Tensegrity Floor Lamp. You can learn more about it directly from Moooi’s website.
