TIME magazine and LIT lighting design awards for FLYTE levitating light bulb

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.

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.

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 FLYTE?

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.
