Plumen's Mission is to 'Inspire the adoption of efficient lighting technologies by creating beautiful-to-behold and beautiful-to-use lighting products. To combine creativity, technology, design and art to establish a new exciting world of efficient lighting for everyone.'
Plumen are the creators of the world’s first designer low energy light bulbs. They have taken a familiar, existing design and transformed it. The energy efficient light bulb is now a desirable object to show and enjoy. Launched in 2010, the Plumen family has expanded to include two designs of energy efficient light bulb and five colours of Drop Cap Pendant Sets.
The Plumen 001 was awarded the Brit Insurance Design of the Year by the Design Museum in London and the prestigious Black Pencil at the D&AD awards in 2011. It is included in the permanent collections of MoMA, the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt Collection, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Design Museum in Helsinki. We celebrate new technologies, champion good ideas and are intent on developing products that elevate everyone’s experience of light.
By adapting the CFL manufacturing process, we have created a visually striking bulb that saves up to 80% on energy bills and lasts 8 times longer than a standard incandescent bulb. We have also developed our very own Plumen LED bulb.
Plumen bulbs are distinguished by their elegant sculptural form. Instead of being hidden from view, as low energy light bulbs tend to be, Plumen bulbs are designed to be on show. We invest in design, research and high-quality components to get the best out of new lighting technologies. By creating an attractive form, we help our customers to make an environmentally sound choice without having to compromise on style.
It is important to us to make our products accessible. We are not interested in creating high-end design pieces that can only be used by a few. We strive to keep prices competitive and make our designs available through as many stores as we can.
By balancing efficiency and design with practical realities, we bring desirable energy efficient bulbs to a wider audience.
The full range will be available to buy from The Decorative Switch & Lighting Company as of Friday 4th March.
