The innovative levitating display solution has caught the attention of the luxury world as a unique way to present exceptional products. The Liège-based start-up is a finalist in the LVMH Innovation Awards, after being selected from over 950 companies.
Founded in 2018, the company invented and developed a display case in which prestigious objects are placed in levitation. Its founders Clément Kerstenne and Philippe Bougard have applied their talents as professional magicians to expand their field of activity and practise magic without being there. And it's a great success !
The proof ? The company has signed contracts with the world's two leading luxury groups, LVMH and Richemont. Twenty of their Gravity Displays have been installed in cities such as Tokyo, New York, Dubai and Shanghai. Levita has won over internationally renowned brands such as Roger Dubuis, Audemars Piguet and Moët Hennessy. Other Gravity Displays openings are planned in the coming months.
In LEVITA display cases, the products are displayed at 360°, without any support, which is a magical experience for customers. Clément Kerstenne says, "After watches, we can now focus on products like phones, champagne, shoes, bags, etc."
In April 2021, Levita submitted its application for the LVMH Innovation Awards. The French giant announced that it had received 950 applications, only to select 11 finalists in the "Omnichannel and Retail" category. The Liège-based start-up was selected and will present its innovation in June on the LVMH stand at the Vivatech trade show, the largest gathering of start-ups and technology in Europe. The ambition of the Walloon entrepreneurs is to win this prestigious competition, so that they can establish their credibility and increase their visibility among the marketing managers of the biggest international brands.
