The Flyte – a levitating light that blends old and new aesthetics

Flyte Levitating light

When you decorate your home, you want to choose things that will inspire you to think outside the box, fit your aesthetic, and be multi-functional. It’s not necessary to have every single item be five things in one, but it is nice to have the option. If you want something that is going to wow guests, look awesome, and be functional for your everyday life, you should know that sort of item is going to cost you a pretty penny.

The Flyte Levitating Light is one such item, being a lamp and a wireless charging dock. The most awesome part is that the light bulb for this doesn’t just illuminate a room, it floats in midair. Sitting about a half inch above a wooden base of either ash, oak, or walnut, will be a soft white LED-filled light bulb. The aesthetics are a pleasant blend of antique and modern. The bulb is shatter-proof, and as it sits above the base, uses induction to stay alight. It can be removed so that phones which are able to be charged wirelessly can be put on for a power up.

The base does need to be plugged in for this to do anything, so it will need to be near an outlet. This is going to cost you $249-549 depending on how fancy of a base you want. This would be an excellent reading light to put by your bed so you can switch between light and charging your phone at night. Of course, it would also be lovely to have in the living room so you can charge up on a whim during the day, but still have access to some illumination if you want it in the evening.
