The Plumen 001 is the world’s first designer energy saving light bulb. The current energy saving light bulbs are a neglected, yet inspiring invention. They use 80% less energy than the traditional incandescent light bulbs, keep down electricity bills and are better for the environment; they also last around 8 times longer.
Despite this, we tend to buy them out of moral obligation. To some the current problem is the light they emit, to others it is the way they look. Both can be solved. We believe the answer is in the design. Make the bulb attractive and people will spend a bit more and enjoy a better quality of light and a design they appreciate every day. Glass tubes can be bent is many different shapes so why are there thousands of manufacturers but only three designs? Plumen aims to address the problem. The name comes from ‘plume’ – a bird’s show feather, designed to attract attention to a bird’s prowess and beauty. We believe our designs do the same for the energy saving light bulb, as you can see from our public FlickR site.
