Plumen was founded in 2010 by Nicolas Roope and Michael-George Hemus, they created the name Plumen, a combination of “plume,” the decorative feathers of a bird and “lumen”, the measurement of light.
Their Original Plumen 001 bulb was the world’s first designer low energy light bulb. The founders couldn’t understand why the humble light bulb – the very symbol of new ideas – hadn’t really evolved in almost 150 years!
Plumen is very serious about lighting design. On the outside the designs are pretty, playful and provocative. On the inside, their rigorous engineering team has given their bulbs long lifespans – at least 10 times longer than an incandescent bulb while using at most, 20% of the energy.
Plumen calls it “Good Design For Good” and they hope to inspire you to explore new efficient technologies that don’t compromise on style or beauty.
