One of TIME Magazine’s Best Inventions of 2016 and winner of the LIT Award Lighting Product Design of 2017, Flyte’s iconic levitating light bulb has been the subject of conversation in homes and offices across the world.
Flyte hovers in mid-air using magnetic levitation and is powered wirelessly through the air. Combining minimalist design and magnetic magic, Flyte makes the ultimate conversation piece and the perfect design gift for any home or office.
A mini art installation
Have you ever seen a light bulb do this?
While most light bulbs are fixed to a socket, Flyte’s energy efficient LEDs are powered through the air, providing a soft, warm white glow.
Suspended in the air with almost no friction, its gentle rotating effect will keep you mesmerized in peaceful state of mind for hours. With Flyte, we’ve set the light bulb free!
The Art of Craft
Designed in Sweden, the FLYTE base is made of quarter-sawn oak, ash and walnut wood finishes.
Each unit is carefully crafted to precision using premium components inspired by minimalism and vintage design.
Minimalist Design, Maximum Wow Factor
The energy-efficient LEDs inside the shatterproof bulb have a light-up time of 50,000 hours. That’s the equivalent of 12 hours a day for 11 years, or 6 hours a day for 22 years; proving both its efficiency and functionality.
Inspired by and named in honor of the celebrated inventor Nikola Tesla, our Nikola model combines a classic, rich-toned Walnut base with our innovative MARCONI bulb in Chrome.
FLYTE Buckminster, named after the visionary American inventor Buckminster Fuller (and also the name of the designer's cat!), features an Edison-style borosilicate glass bulb, a 7 LED star-shaped filament, a Copper cap and an aluminum ring. The base is crafted from a sustainably-sourced Walnut wood.
Inspired by New York City's monochrome skyline, Manhattan features an Edison style borosilicate glass bulb, a 7 LED star-shaped filament, a Chrome cap and an aluminum ring. The base is crafted from a sustainably-sourced Walnut wood.
FLYTE Royal is our Oak edition and one of our best sellers. Royal features an Edison style borosilicate glass bulb, a 7 LED star-shaped filament, a Gold cap and an aluminum ring. The base is crafted from a sustainably-sourced Oak wood.
How does it work?
Wireless power transfer transmission has been around since the days of Nikola Tesla. With FLYTE we've packed some of Tesla's tech and combined it with magnetic levitation, opening up a magical world of possibilities.
How do I levitate ?
Gently lower the bulb over the center of the magnetic base. The LEDs will start to light up and you will start to feel an upward resistance.
When the bulb is positioned exactly at the center of the base, you will feel a gentle release. The electro-magnets will automatically center the bulb in position.
Slowly let go of the bulb and it will lock in position, light up and rotate slowly.
Turning On & Off
Turning on & off your FLYTE is as simple as touching the surface of the base. The light will turn on or off, while the levitation will remain intact.
Our capacitive touch sensor is where the magic happens. Our FLYTE switch feels effortless and smooth, just like touching wood.
