Italian-based design studio idea3Di has created a new levitating lamp which has been created to mix design, technology and “magic” to create a unique desktop lamp which has been launched via Kickstarter this week. Now available to back with early bird pledges available from €99 the Levia levitating lamp is fitted with a heavy marble stand and uses magnets to create the levitation between bulb and stand. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the design of the Levia lamp.
The lamp’s stem length allows the LED filament bulb to levitate at a height of about 20 cm from the ground above marble base, “the effect is a perfect balance between the shapes and the levitation distance” say its creators.
“The Levia desk lamp is the result of painstaking Italian craftsmanship. The base is made of Genuine Carrara or Black Marquina, which is cut by cnc and hand-finished for a polished and beautiful look.. Levia is a unique design product! It’s a desk lamp that uses the magnetic levitation system, a method by which one object is suspended on another, thanks to a magnetic field which can combat the gravitational pull effect.”
