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.
The Flyte Buckminster Levitating Bulb, 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.
How does it work?
Wireless power transfer transmission has been around since the days of Nikola Tesla. FLYTE has packed some of Tesla's tech and combined it with magnetic levitation, opening up a magical world of possibilities. FLYTE bulb is powered wirelessly via induction. The lower voltage wireless power module is completely safe and harmless.
Flyte uses energy efficient LEDs rated at about 50,000 hours. That's 12 hours a day for 11 years!
Flyte makes the ultimate conversation piece and the perfect design gift for any home or office.
