Our love affair with fellow London-based start-up Made.com shows no sign of slowing down… A little over a year after the launch of our first collaborative shade collection, featuring the swanky Plume and Rehm shades, we’re back with a brand new shade family – the Memoir Collection, available now at made.com.
Tailor-made for our Plumen 002 Dimmable LED bulb, the new range includes three shade designs in a mix of sconce, table and pendant lights, perfect to co-ordinate home spaces, offices and typing pools.
Inspired from task lamps popular in the smoky, panelled offices of tightly styled 50’s interiors, the moody Memoir collection takes on a modern twist with the inclusion of the sculpted Plumen 002 LED bulb.
The sharp edgy steel, sleek polished brass and angular shapes create a striking effect in any dimly lit corner of the home. The perforated metal sheet means you can enjoy the bulb’s sculptural silhouette even when it’s off, whilst the conical shape helps direct the light to where you need it. When turned on, the light slips through the tiny perforation, creating beautiful fade and blur effects on the nearest surface.
The Memoir Collection builds the Made.com x Plumen association into a long-lasting partnership as we have more designs in the pipeline! It’s a loving partnership, inspired by our shared passion for good, affordable design. And it looks like the feeling is mutual!
“Working with a design-led technology brand like Plumen allowed us to incorporate their new LED bulb, the Plumen 002 – it’s energy efficient and really complements the collection. Collaborating with such an innovative brand allows us to expand our range and introduce more original and exciting design. That’s what MADE.COM is all about” says Beatriz Nuno, MADE.com Studio Product Designer.
We’re both making a stand in our industry, introducing new models of creation and production. As Made.com undercut the middle man in the production process to keep costs down, Plumen challenges the lighting industry through good design to establish a new and exciting world of efficient lighting for everyone.
We’re taking it one step further as we are currently raising investment on Crowdcube to fund the next generation of exciting energy efficient products – namely the Plumen 003 and a brand new range of filament LED bulbs. We’ll be launching our first Smart bulbs in the next 18 months which will open up a whole new category in designer smart lighting. We like a challenge!
