Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs Design Unraveled

Posted by Blair Eisenbraun on Sep 10, 2010

English design company Hulger has released some interesting new compact fluorescent light bulb designs that are both practical and visually appealing.

Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs Design Unraveled
A lot of people have complained about the look of twist-style compact fluorescent light bulbs.  Personally I think they look cool; I don't understand why people have a problem with these energy efficient light bulbs.  English design company Hulger, however, does understand, and has designed some new compact fluorescent light bulbs that should cater to the people who don't like current CFL designs.
 
They call their newly designed compact fluorescent light bulb the Plumen 001.  Just like standard CFLs, these energy efficient light bulbs use about 80% less energy than incandescent, and last around eight times longer.  The design breaks away from the common twist style tubing to much wider lasso-like loops.  
 
They look very nice, but they also have practical improvements as well.  There is far less tubing being covered up with this design, which increases efficiency and light output.  The coiled/twisted tubing of standard compact fluorescent light bulbs actually prevents some light from shining through, thus reducing efficiency by a small margin.
 
Even with this small detriment, standard compact fluorescent light bulbs paved the way for energy efficient lighting and even thinking.  The Hulger-designed CFLs uphold the benefits of CFLs while also redesigning the glass tubing and increasing efficiency and aesthetic appeal.  I look forward to seeing one of these light bulbs in action some day.
