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.

As a floor lamp, Raimond Tensegrity is both weightless and grounded. The intricate stainless steel bands lend the sphere a floating appearance, while the solid oak feet with leather straps give the base an organic, root-like semblance.
