About

LIGHTEST is a levitating light which floats by using magnets in the base.  The lamp levitates over the base and can be stationary or if you give it a little spin will keep spinning for hours, due to the lack of friction.

 

LIGHTEST is the future that sci-fi authors have been speaking about for decades, maglevs with cable-less power!

The lamp is powered through induction, whereby a small electric current is generated in the light by passing a current through the base.

The lampshade is detachable so you can 3d print your own lampshades, or make your own from any material you like. You can even create vases and holders with an illuminated base.

LIGHTEST is controlled via a radio remote which allows you to turn it on or off, change the intensity of the light and change the colour of the light to set the ambient mood.

The base even comes with an embedded battery (included in all pledges) so you can disconnect the power cable and take Lightest wherever you like for any event.  The battery lasts for up to 6 hours at full brightness.

Take LIGHTEST anywhere you want

LIGHTEST is handmade with love and attention.  The base is made from recycled wood and we use premium parts in the circuitry to ensure maximum efficiency and durability.

If you enjoy the idea of floating your own sculptures, trophies or displays, you can even buy the entry level Maker Kit which comes with only a magnet to hover above the base, on which you can place anything weighing up to 450grams.
