Gallery: Hulger Launches Stylish Energy-Saving Plumen 002 Light Bulbs o...

Plumen hopes to bring "magic and poetry back to the humble light bulb."

In 2010, the firm unveiled the Plumen 001 as the world’s first designer energy-saving bulb and all-purpose alternative to the 60W incandescent bulb. The award-winning bulb is now sold worldwide and is included in the MoMa’s permanent art collection. After three years of development, the Plumen 002 was introduced today as a compact florescent light bulb that also boasts the warmth and output of a 30W incandescent bulb with only 25% of the energy use. Designed for ambient settings such as coffee shops, this cozy, mood-setting bulb features a sensuous sculpted geometry to add an artistic flair to everyday environments.

To help secure the expected retail price of $35, Plumen has turned to Kickstarter to reach critical mass on order volume. The crowdfunding campaign for the 7W designer bulb will run from today until February 9th, 2014.

    Actually, induction lighting is the future, not LED.

    Sorry but I think the CFL is interim technology. The future is LED. And I\’m willing to bet in 5 years there will be so many different LED shapes and sizes that it will revolutionize design.
