Flyte Levitating Lamp
'FLYTE' is a truly captivating lamp that hovers by magnetic levitation and is powered through the air via induction. The bulb rotates slowly above the centre of its wooden base - creating a soft, magical light as it spins.

The base is made from sustainable quarter-sawn oak, ash and walnut wood and the lamp itself is protected by a plastic case. The lamp contains warm energy efficient LEDs rated at 50,000 hours (12 hours a day for a 11 years) The Flyte can be turned on or off by simply touching the base with your finger and will continue to leviate when the bulb is off.
The wireless power module is capable of transmitting about 5V, and can also be used to charge up your smartphone or tablet when the bulb isn’t in use.
Designed in Sweden, the 'Flyte' is a modern and innovative piece of art that's sure to make an impression wherever you may place it. It comes beautifully packaged and would also make a great present.
How it works
Tucked inside the wooden base, you’ll find two things: an array of electromagnets and a magnetic induction charger. When you lower the bulb onto the block, the the outermost electromagnets serve to attract the bulb’s base, while inner (and slightly stronger) magnets create a repelling force. This holds the bulb in place and causes it to hover a few centimeters above the block.
Once it’s within range, a receiver at the bulb’s base is able to pick up power from the charger block via magnetic induction, which supplies it with enough power to illuminate an array of LEDs. The wireless power module (timber base) is capable of transmitting about 5V, and can also be used to charge up your smartphone or tablet when the bulb isn’t in use.
