Plumen: Low Energy Lighting

The design/ style is too industrial for me but some people can really pull this off.

Designer: London based company Hulgar
Recognized as: Shaped tubes into a sculpture of light rather than basic bulb formats
Specifications: Uses 80% less electricity than incandescent bulbs, and last 8 times longer.
Additional Info:Low-energy light bulbs contain small traces of mercury, which is not dangerous in the dose 1 bulb can provide.
