Gorgeous CFLs ISO Manufacturer
Emily Gertz, 23 Nov 07

For all the low-energy-use virtues of compact florescent lightbulbs (CFLs), few of them match the streamlined elegance of the classic Edison lightbulb. And yes, this makes a difference -- not only to getting people to make the switch (ha!) to CFLs, but because there's just no reason they need to be ugly.

Enter design company Hulger with its' "Plumen" line of gorgeous, sculptural CFL designs. Currently they're prototypes; Hulger is seeking a manufacturer. After the jump: images of the Plumen line.

How low is the low-energy use?

I appreciate the idea, but these are dumb-looking. The normal coils are actually pretty cool, in my opinion.

These are really interesting. Most of them are pretty flowery, but adding a design element to a common fixture is a great idea.
