We’ve put together a list of shades that we love from our Pinterest board. We think most of these fittings would be brilliant with the Plumen 002 (although untested so don’t take our word for it!).

Brand New Packaging Has Arrived

Brand New Packaging Has Arrived

Brand New Packaging Has Arrived

At the turn of the year we rolled out a brand spanking new packaging design for our entire range of products. This is the first time we’ve updated our branding since the launch of the first Plumen 001 in 2010 so it was an exciting transition for us. Time to introduce our new packaging!

As a brand, we are constantly seeking to develop and progress so rethinking the packaging was part of a natural evolution. For this new version, we worked with our graphic designer, Violetta Boxill, to create a more seductive design and to make the bulb more visible in the box when on the shelf. Read more…

Mobile Design Box launches with Ryan Tretow and Plumen

This week’s blog focuses on our second collaboration with Ryan Tretow and highlights his initiative to showcase young and innovative design talent at the Mobile Design Box in Milwaukee.

As soon as Ryan got in touch about using Plumen again, we didn’t hesitate to say yes. This time around, we provided Ryan with some Plumen 002s and Drop Caps for him to incorporate into his build at the new pop up gallery. Mobile Design Box opened in January and is an ongoing project, created through a collaboration between the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee School of Architecture & Urban Planning (UWM SARUP), Mandel Group and TRETOW.

Woodrow & Co’s striking new partner for the Plumen 001

WOODORW & CO'S STRIKING NEW PARTNER FOR THE PLUMEN 001

Woodrow & Co’s Lamp No.1 with the Plumen 001

 

Woodrow & Co is an American design company based in Salt Lake City who has specifically developed their Lamp No.1 as a companion to our Plumen 001 bulb. The simple design of the Lamp No.1 perfectly compliments the sculptural elegance of our Plumen 001.

Woodrow & Co is a project of the design and engineering firm Swarm, led by Product Designer, Jon Hart. Their aim was to create a unique platform to display the Plumen 001. They came up with the striking, organic base, which can be used as a table lamp or wall sconce and we love how they have incorporated the bulb with their new lamp design.
