The PLUMEN 001 is the world’s first designer low energy light bulb. The dynamic, sculptured form contrasts to the dull regular shapes of existing low energy bulbs, in an attempt to make the Plumen a centerpiece, not afterthought. The PLUMEN 001 works like any other high quality low energy bulb – saving you 80% on your energy bills and lasting 8 times longer than a standard incandescent bulb.
Samuel Wilkinson with Hulger

At the end on 2007 Wilkinson set up his own studio developing self driven projects.
Hulger was co-founded by Nicholas Roope and Michael-George Hemus. The company founded on the idea of old telephone handsets plugged into cellphones, but has since expanded. Plumen was conceptualized in 2007 by the company.
