plumen cfl's: beautiful and energy efficient

Hulger’s Plumen bulbs explore artistic alternatives to the energy-efficient CFL.
“Despite there being an abundance of CFL producers, we see only three basic bulb formats available: The Radiator, The Ice Cream Whip and the Tungsten-esc types. Each style is uniform in shape, with no variation, tension or interest. It seems strange that the bulb, an object so synonymous with ideas, is almost entirely absent of imagination.”
Their redesign is motivated by a desire for people to purchase the bulbs from an aesthetic standpoint in addition to necessity.
