Plumen was founded in 2010 by Nicolas Roope and Michael-George Hemus, they created the name Plumen, a combination of “plume,” the decorative feathers of a bird and “lumen”, the measurement of light, which reflect the values of the company. Their Original Plumen 001 bulb was the world’s first designer low energy light bulb. They couldn’t understand why the humble light bulb – the very symbol of new ideas – hadn’t really evolved in almost 150 years.
SUSTAINABLE LIGHTING DESIGN They are very serious about lighting design. On the outside our designs are pretty, playful and provocative. On the inside, their rigorous engineering team has given their bulbs long lifespans – at least 10 times longer than an incandescent bulb while using at most, 20% of the energy.
