World’s Most Stylish Light Bulb

Janet Hall January 03, 2014

When it comes to fluorescent lighting, we look to the design-worthy light bulb from Plumen. The popular European bulb is available in a US version (110V), saves 80 percent on energy, and lasts eight times as long as a standard incandescent bulb.

Above: The Plumen 001 Light Bulb is no different in functionality than the standard screw-in fluorescent bulb; it stands out for its sculptural form and the fact that it radiates warm white light. The bulb is priced at $29.95 in the US for either the screw or bayonet fitting.

Above: The Plumen adds new life to a pair of antique mercury glass lamps.

 

Above: An old wirework light is more interesting with a Plumen than an incandescent bulb or LED.

Above: Lumens work well in groups. For more, see Plumen.
