Message from the founders
A little inspiration can take you a long way.
Back in 2007, Plumen was just an idea. We didn’t plan to start a company, we just wanted to encourage the light bulb industry to be more creative. We simply made a prototype, a basic website and a press release and put it live. We weren’t sure what people would think.
It turned out they loved it. Suddenly, people were positive about low energy light bulbs and were telling us to start making them even though we’d never sold a light bulb in our lives. We set out to inspire others, in the end it was others who inspired us.
Of course, the light bulb is the symbol for inspiration. In particular, the symbol is the Edison light bulb – a product that perfect in almost every way; affordable, creates great light and magical to look at. Edison is a tough act to follow, but we knew, if we were going to inspire people to switch to energy efficient technology, it was the standard we had aim for.
Several years, many countries and half a million products later, Plumen is a proper light bulb company. Now, as technology shifts again, it is time make inspirational LED bulbs.
Doing so isn’t easy and we know we need support. Naturally, we’re turning to the people who inspired us in the first place. By crowdfunding, we’re going back to where it all started, looking for the inspiration to go again.
This is your chance to own a piece of Plumen and to help us pick up where Edison left off.

Meet the Team
Our goal is simple – to inspire people all over the world to be energy efficient. Most people want to do their bit and use less energy from cleaner sources, they’re just not sure how. Government legislation is not the best answer because no-one likes to be forced to do anything. It’s up to manufacturers to lead the way by offering compelling products that are better than the old, inefficient technology. Tesla have proved this with cars. We aim to prove it with light bulbs.
If you feel the same way and like what we do, then we’d love to have you join us for the journey.
