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, which reflect the values of the company. The Original Plumen 001 bulb was the world’s first designer low energy light bulb. They couldn’t understand why the humble light bulb – the very symbol of new ideas – hadn’t really evolved in almost 150 years.
Plumen are very serious about lighting design. On the outside the designs are pretty, playful and provocative. On the inside, a rigorous engineering team has given our bulbs long lifespans – at least 10 times longer than an incandescent bulb while using at most, 20% of the energy. Proud to say you can have it all.
