Eco-friendly lightbulbs get a designer makeover

Now that we're moving on from traditional lightbulbs to more eco-friendly designs, designers have much more freedom with what they do with light. Design house Hulger is tackling light bulbs as their next big object, using the twisting tubes as pieces of functional art that you won't want to hide behind a shade.

The new bulbs, called Plumen, should be hitting the market soon, although the final designs have yet to be unveiled. But with the Plumens delivering both aesthetic quality and energy-saving tech, they look to be winners right out of the gate.
