Plumen 003

September 9, 2016

LED bulbs eh? We all know they make sense on many counts but so often in the past as a light source they’ve been disappointing. Lighting is such an important element of interior design that the most beautifully designed room will be ruined by the wrong lighting. Thankfully Plumen have been leading the way in LED lighting and have just launched the Plumen 003 – so now try to tell me you don’t like LED lighting?

Plumen believes that this is the most beautiful light bulb ever created – and I think they might be right. The light bulb consists of two different elements to create a unique and very warming light source. A downward spotlight creates a task light source, casting a pool of light for reading, working or eating. This is then complemented by a soft golden ambient lighting from the multi faceted gold element. The dual elements of the bulb would make it ideal as a feature installation over your dining table – you can still see what you are eating while you and your guests look amazing.

The central gold element was designed by a jeweller. The engineering team at Plumen have developed a principle to cast the light exactly where needed, so the LED light is warmed by this gold element to create a soft glow. At the same time the structure has been designed to draw away the heat from the LED – so it not only looks beautiful but equally important it is efficient.

Plumen recognises that many people still don’t like LED lighting. Nicolas Roope, the Co-founder and Creative Director of Plumen says “To persuade all those who still haven’t moved to low energy lighting, we knew we needed something really special to tempt them in. Something beautiful, beguiling, compelling. We needed some seductive sustainability. So for the past five years we’ve been designing and developing the Plumen 003. Here it is.” Five years well spent I’d say, and I can’t wait to see the bulb when it is available from next month.

With a bulb lifespan of 10,000 hours it is definitely worth making an investment in the new Plumen 003. Head over to their website now to place your order, and be among the first to enhance your home with this amazing light bulb.
