Plumen has taken a familiar, existing design and transformed it into a desirable object to show off and enjoy. This British company was launched in 2010 and has expanded to include two designs of energy efficient light bulbs, five colours of Drop Cap Pendant Sets and two lampshade styles.
Plumen 001 - The Plumen 001 bulb 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.
Plumen 002- For the design of their second bulb, the 002, Plumen was looking to produce something very different to the original 001 and Barbara Hepworth’s artwork, Spring (1966) was undeniably the inspiration for the direction they wanted to go in.
Plumen Drop Top Lamp Shade Set - Designed by Samuel Wilkinson, 2011, the Plumen Drop Top Lamp Shade Set is a mouth-blown tinted glass shade that softens the brightness from side views, while allowing the unique Plumen bulb form to be seen and enjoyed. Surfaces beneath are still illuminated fully, making this a beautiful, yet practical shade for countless applications.
Plumen celebrates new technologies, champions good ideas and is intent on developing products that elevate everyone’s experience of light. By creating an attractive form, Plumen helps you make an environmentally sound choice without having to compromise on style.
