Elevate both your décor and your life. Flyte Buckminster is a levitating light which hovers by magnetic levitation and is powered through the air. Flyte requires no batteries and is powered through the air via induction.

Flyte Buckminster, which is designed in Sweden, is named after the visionary American inventor Buckminster Fuller (who was the subject of a 2009 MCA exhibition) and 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 sustainably-sourced walnut wood. Flyte Buckminster uses an energy efficient LED rated to last about 50,000 hours. That’s 12 hours of usage a day for 11 years! Flyte includes a walnut base, lightbulb with copper cap and AC adapter. No batteries required.

Flyte has been named a Best Invention by TIME magazine and one of the 60 coolest things in the world right now by GQ.
All proceeds from the MCA Store support the exhibitions and programs of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
