The sculptural light bulbs use 80% less electricity than incandescent bulbs, and last eight times longer.

Here's some information from Hulger:


THE WORLD’S FIRST DESIGNER LOW ENERGY LIGHT BULB

Plumen is the antithesis of low energy light bulbs as we know them. Rather than hide the unappealing traditional compact fluorescent light behind boring utility, Plumen 001 is a bulb you’ll want on show.

The Plumen bulb uses 80% less energy and lasts 8 times longer than incandescent bulbs, giving you the opportunity to purchase an ecological product with style. It works just like any low energy bulb but it has a lot more presence.

"It’s strange that the bulb, an object so synonymous with ideas, is almost entirely absent of imagination.”

- Nicolas Roope, Hulger co-founder and creative director

The Plumen 001 is built with beauty at its heart, glowing with the aesthetic of a sculptural object. The forms the glass tubes take are irregular yet harmonious, as the two organic shapes mirror each other to create symmetry.

The name Plumen comes from ‘plume’ - the bird’s decorative feather, designed to attract attention to its’ prowess and beauty. We believe our designs do the same for the neglected low energy light bulb.

The first Plumen concept design joined the very prestigious permanent collection at MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) in New York, while the second was featured at the Victoria and Albert museum in London.
