plumen shines light on its new, more efficient and sleeker 001 LED lightbulb

plumen – famed for their energy-efficient designer lightbulbs – has reincarnated their iconic 001 LED, raising the bar once more with their contemporary design. as well as offering even more exceptional light quality, the product unites form, function and innovation.

co-founder & creative director nicolas roope says;our goal is for sustainable design to be a natural choice and our light bulbs aim to inspire that change. we are proud of the huge effort that has gone into bringing the 001 LED to market. our original 001 is a tough act to follow, but we believe this reincarnated 001 LED will become a new classic, and a sound choice for anyone who enjoys beautiful design that doesn’t cost the earth.

the new plumen 001 LED enhances an advanced, patented LED construction that replaces the previous compact fluorescent technology. this enables greater control, performance and longevity – being completely dimmable and having a lifespan of over 20,000 hours. it still retains the original and instantly recognizable double-looped shape, but is now available in three color temperatures: super-warm, warm and cool.

the new technical inner-workings of the lightbulb ensures a sleeker form is achieved, which, in turn, creates a design that appears more elegantly with fittings and shades. its materials have also changed; it is composed of a ceramic housing that establishes a more premium finish, while LED tubes provide a matt finish. furthermore, neither aluminum nor mercury have been used, meaning the bulb can be fully dissembled and is 100% recyclable.
