Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's the FLYTE light. This futuristic take on the Edison bulb is a levitating light that hovers above its base by magnetic suspension. As the energy-efficient LED bulb floats, it rotates slowly in the air, adding even more mystery to this extraordinary object. The sustainably sourced wood base plugs into a standard power outlet and lets you turn the light on and off with a single touch. Includes base, lightbulb and AC Adapter. Maximum brightness: 60 Lumens.
Why We Chose This
Though its vintage-inspired design is a nod to Thomas Edison’s original light bulb, Flyte’s feel is futuristic. Inventor Simon Morris has also created magnetically levitating skateboards and sneakers, and now leads a team of designers and engineers whose priorities are discovery and play — using the physics of magnets to defy expectations.
