Design of the Week: Orbital Levitation Lamp

By on June 24th, 2013 in Design


This week’s selection is designer Margot Krasojevic’s amazing Orbital Levitaiton LED Lamp. It’s a wispy, cloud-like 3D printed shape with an embedded LED light source. 
Beautiful, to be sure, but that’s not the most interesting part. The lamp uses magnetic levitation to float above its mount. It floats in thin air! Even better, you can provide a slight push and the lamp will slowly rotate in the air.
