Plumen 003 light bulb

September 27th, 2016 by retail design blog

Though not traditionally thought of the as the sexiest of items, Plumen took that on as a challenge to create yet another functional, beautiful light that not only lights its surroundings, but enhances it. As a result, they launched the Plumen 003 light bulb, their most gorgeous light bulb yet.

The devil is in the details. Plumen recruited a jeweler to design the glimmering faceted surface pattern. The gold surface creates a unique, textured light that’s reminiscent of a precious stone.

The gold elements float in the center of the bulb, while sitting on a plinth that detracts heat from the LED to keep it energy efficient.

This LED light bulb took five years to make, and has two types of light— a downward spotlight that’s ideal for focusing on a specific task, and a warm gold shade in the center that creates a flattering ambient light that’s especially flattering for faces. In summary, the light bulb is both beautiful to look at, while also making its environment beautiful too.
