With its line of low-energy bulbs—the first energy-efficient designer light bulbs to market—Plumen offers a solution for long-lasting illumination that is fit for a well-designed modern home. With designs that offer a sculptural take on incandescent filaments and the shape of traditional bulbs, Plumen provides lighting options that endure, both functionally and aesthetically. Take a closer look at Plumen’s bulbs alongside pendant lights from Niche Modern that showcase the sculptural bulbs. 

Copper pendant with Plumen 001 bulb

Shown with the simple Drop cap Pendant, the Plumen 001 is the original energy-saving bulb from Plumen. The bulb’s dynamic design mimics the filament found in incandescent bulbs, but its glass, sculptural silhouette makes the bulb look more elegant than traditional bulbs and standard CFLs. The Plumen 001 has a screw fitting that fits into any lamp that accommodates a standard screw bulb.

A closer look at the Plumen 001 bulb.

The Plumen 001’s 11-watt power is equivalent to a 55-watt incandescent in terms of illumination. It also has a lifetime of eight years, while typical incandescent bulbs last up to one year.

Compact sculptural low-energy designer bulb

The Plumen 001 Baby is the more compact version of the Plumen 001. The Baby’s 9-watt power is equivalent to a 40-watt incandescent in terms of illumination and it has a lifetime of eight years— typical incandescent bulbs last up to one year. CFLs tend to produce harsh light reminiscent of fluorescent lamps, while the Plumen 001 Baby diffuses warm white light.

From Niche Modern, the Delinea Glass Pendant Light is a sculptural glass hanging light. Made of hand-blown glass, the Delinea is available with a tubular incandescent bulb, but can be paired with a Plumen 001 Bulb (as shown) to create a striking look that celebrates both the sophisticated glass shade and interior illumination.

The Plumen Drop Cap Pendant Set was designed to coordinate with the Plumen 001 bulb, and also supports the smaller Plumen 001 Baby and Plumen 002 (shown). The Drop Cap contains an interior screw fixture and covers the upper part of the bulb, creating a simple and elegant frame of the glass tubes of the bulb. The Plumen 002 mimics the shape of an incandescent bulb, while adding a sculptural, sophisticated slant.
