I first came across this design at this years Birmingham Interiors Show, in the Designers Block section and since then it’s popularity has rocketed. It was displayed in George Clarke’s revamped eco-friendly house at last months Ideal Home Show event at London’s Earl Court.
Designed by Sam Wilkinson, this Plumen light bulb is the worlds first designer energy-saving bulb which takes on a snake-like shape and looks amazing set in the dark glass shade. (Above) It lasts 8x longer and uses 80% les energy than incandescent bulbs, saving you on your electric bill as well as looking hot!
The name Plumen came from “plume” which is a birds decorative feather, used to attract attention and this certainly does that! The great news is that the bulb doesn’t cost a fortune and a nightmare to get hold of, in fact you can lay your hand on one of these delights for only £19.95 from B&Q! Hurry before they’re sold out!
