New Low-Energy Designer Light Bulb Shrinks

It’s not something I tweet about, make known on Facebook, or generally make any noise about whatsoever, but I actually really like light bulbs. They fascinate me. They always have. Ever since I was a little kid and I realised that a broken light bulb meant the little filament would be dangling instead of held taught.

So that’s why I’m so stoked about the new Baby Plumen 001 from Hulger & Samuel Wilkinson.

The Sexy New Baby Plumen 001 Light Bulb

The Baby Plumen 001 is simply a more compact version of the Original Plumen 001 design (seen in the video below), but now allows you the options provided by a smaller light bulb. The Baby Plumen 001 works just like any other low-energy bulb, saving you 80% on your energy bills and lasting 8 times longer than your standard incandescent bulb.

The Baby Plumen 001 Now Fits Everywhere

The 220V version is now available to buy from in both screw and bayonet fits for £18.95 (or €28,95), while the 120V will be avilable to buy later this year.
