Plumen

Plumen - Philosophy & Bio

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.

They celebrate new technologies, champion good ideas and are intent on developing products that elevate everyone’s experience of light.
