If there is some sort of thread that travels through the life of Raimond Puts (1937 - 2012) then it must be that of technical engineering. The machine designer he later became developed this talent already at a very early age when he played around with his meccano toy box. Technical science has fascinated him since. During his technical education he 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.
