In 2010, the firm unveiled the Plumen 001 [2] 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 [3] 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 [4] to reach critical mass on order volume. The crowdfunding campaign for the 7W designer bulb will run from today until February 9th, 2014.
