Levitating Lamp

Silhouette is the name of this black table lamp in a classic design - apart from one small detail; The top of the lamp is floating in the air.

What makes this lamp floating is the integrated levitation technology. It consist out of electromagnetic components and a sophisticated control system. Next to the fact that they employ the very latest LED technology, the lamp is low in power consumption too. With a touch of your fingertip, the lamp can be dimmed to the intensity you require.

whitcwa: Yeah, but that's 26kWh a year, or a couple of bucks worth; not much compared to the cost of the lamp. And what's with "latest LED technology"? LEDs are no longer a big deal; they're everywhere.
http://www.brillianz.co.uk/data/documents/Lumen.pdf tells me LEDs are still less efficient than fluorescents.

Kind of cool, but so were lava lamps. Is it me, or does this video not show the illumination funtion of the lamp? It looks to me like it is not casting any light at all.

So it levitates the shade. A neat though unnecessary trick. Kind of a disadvantage really because it uses 72 WH/day just levitating the shade. And it looks bad if you don't leave the levitation on because the lines of the shade don't match. And it's €980.00! In a lot of countries for that much money you could hire a servant to hold the shade in mid air.
