To add a little magic and mystery to your interiors, the Ingo Maurer FlyCandle Fly fixture will certainly turn heads. The trompe d'oeil pendant lamp mimics the form and luminosity of a wick-lit candle, when really it's a 110V to 125V contraption equipped with a 20-hour light bulb.

Measuring just over 30 cm in height, the delightful dangling lumiere is attached to a clear wire suspension that can hang from a ceiling as far as 3 m up. Designed by George Baldele, this slender pendant lamp is enhanced by its true wax composition.

For added effect, a dozen of such floating fixtures can be clustered together to produce a truly extraordinary appearance. Seemingly straight out of the Hogwarts dining hall from Harry Potter, the Ingo Maurer FlyCandle Fly levitating light is brilliant for special occasions.
