Minimalist design, maximum efficiency, ARC is a dimmable statement LED light bulb tested in space. From the creators of the world’s first levitating light bulb, Swedish design brand FLYTE is on a new mission: to transform our everyday light bulbs into something unique and beautiful.
500 miles from the Arctic Circle, where winters are harsh and light is rare, we journey on a balloon above the clouds on the shortest day of the year, where temperatures drop to -76 F and altitudes reach over 100,000 feet. Part art, part science project, FLYTE set out on a journey to set the light bulb free, launching ARC to near space to capture light in it’s most precious moments : up in the stratosphere.
ARC is the latest creation from the Scandinavian design brand FLYTE, known for it’s collection of gravity-defying lights, planters, and clocks.
Venturing beyond their range of levitating products, ARC is FLYTE’s first designer LED light bulb, inspired by the Nordic climate and crafted with minimalist precision and stunning efficiency. LED technology has made our world brighter and more efficient but let’s face it, not all LEDs are designed responsibly. LED lights are everywhere – often cold and harsh, hurting our eyes when viewed directly. ARC is like looking into the warm blaze of a fire: it is intended to be appreciated – not just efficient. With ARC, we can share the message to the world that light bulbs can be both aesthetically beautiful and energy efficient.
