The world renowned bulb manufacturer Plumen, has recently launched their first lamp shade named Drop Top Lamp Shade. The mouth-blown glass Drop Top is a perfect choice for emphasizing Plumen’s unique bulb silhouettes, yet have the ability to direct the full brightness of the light onto surfaces below.
The lamp shade is available in three colours that provide different levels of shade, each giving a distinct colour ambience: amber, white, and black. The Drop Top can be purchased separately to add to an existing Drop Cap, or as a complete set that also includes the Plumen Bulb and Drop Cap that creates a complete pendant lighting solution.
We all know that whether using LED or CFL technologies, energy efficient light bulbs need to house electronics and heat sinks that bulk out the base and push the light source and glass orb outwards. If this is taken into consideration during the design process of shades and accessories, the light source can be presented and proportioned beautifully. If not the relationship feels clumsy and ugly. So why are most shades still designed for incandescents?
