FLYTE is a levitating light which hovers by magnetic levitation and is powered through the air. Merging the words "fly", "light", and the Swedish word for "float", Flyte creates luminous spectacles that combine the wonders of magnetic levitation with wireless power. A lifelong passion that finally got off the ground Flyte's collection of gravity-defying lights are a testament to lofty design. Designed in Sweden, the FLYTE base is made of quarter-sawn oak, ash and walnut wood finishes using energy efficient LEDs rated at about 50,000 hours. That's 12 hours a day for 11 years!
