Welcome: Plumen

Just last week I was on the hunt for energy efficient light bulbs.  While I have tried them in various spots around our apartment, I just haven't been able to embrace the light they give off.  Enter Plumen, the world’s first designer energy saving light bulb created by the amazing folks at the London design shop Hulger.  Three years in the making, the Plumen bulb uses 80% less energy and lasts eight times longer than incandescent bulbs.  I love the fact that they have really thought out the details down to the name; the name Plumen comes from ‘plume,’ the bird’s decorative feather, designed to attract attention to its’ prowess and beauty.

The Plumen 001 is currently only compatible with a voltage system of 230v meaning that while it will work in Europe, it will not work in the USA quite yet.  Fingers crossed it will be available soon for those of us on this side of the pond.
