I’m not sure what all the fuss is about. Some people think spiral-shaped compact fluorescent light bulbs are ugly. I think they are kinda cute.
Not to worry, though, if you just can’t stand that spiral look. A London-based company has just announced a “designer” CFL – the Plumen 001. It is designed to offer the same CFL 80 percent energy savings over standard incandescents. But it has a unique twist which architecurally intrigues individuals while providing light.
It currently sells for about $38 U.S. – little pricey – and not yet available in the United States. The company is planning to release a similar version for the U.S. market in 2011.
