Plumen 001 - Screw Fitting

The PLUMEN 001 is the world's first designer low energy light bulb. The dynamic, sculptured form contrasts to the dull regular shapes of existing low energy bulbs, in an attempt to make the Plumen a centerpiece, not afterthought. 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.

Designed by HULGER and Samuel Wilkinson
