The Plumen 002 is Designed to Be Used Naked

The Plumen 002 is a new low-energy light bulb designed for both form and function. The name 'Plumen' should sound familiar as design studio Hulger named its first designer, low-energy light bulb the Plumen 001. Unlike the first Plumen, the 002 has less twists and turns and gives off a much softer light.

The Plumen 002 uses the energy of a 7W bulb but gives off the light of a 30W incandescent bulb. The push for form to complement function comes from Hulger's vision that the Plumen 002 would be best used without shades. Fluorescent and LED light bulbs provide light and don't use as much energy as incandescent bulbs, but they aren't nearly as easy on the eyes as Hulger's newest design. The company has taken its bulb to Kickstarter in search of $20,000 of funding.
