Giant sphere: Raimond Tensegrity floor lamp by Moooi

The lamp has stainless steel bands that lend the sphere a floating appearance.

Dutch firm Moooi launched the Raimond Tensegrity floor lamp, a giant LED sphere balanced on wooden crisscrossed sticks. Designed by Raimond Puts and realized by Ox-ID, Raimond Tensegrity has stainless steel bands that lend the sphere a floating appearance, while solid oak feet with leather straps give the base an organic, root-like semblance. The name “tensegrity” means tensional integrity or “floating compression,” a term coined by architect Buckminster Fuller (of geodesic dome fame). Basically, tensegrity refers to any object where push and pull forces work together.
