Plumen 001: Low energy and design
The British company Hulger has designed Plumen 001, the world’s first designer low energy light bulb. The dynamic, sculptured form contrasts to the dull regular shapes of existing low energy bulbs. The Plumen 001 works like any other high quality low energy bulb – saving you 80% on your energy bills and lasting 8 times longer than a standard incandescent bulb.
The name Plumen comes from the “plume,” the decorative feathers of a bird and “lumen,” the unit of light. This exceptional design was awarded the Brit Insurance Design of the Year in 2011, one of the world’s highest profile international design awards.
