Lighting brand Plumen has designed a set of LED Edison light bulbs that it claims have a lifespan of a quarter of a century.

The low-energy WattNott is based on the design of classic Edison light bulbs, which feature intricate, wound filaments. They are recognisable for their warm glow and antique look.

Hoping to update the design, Plumen fitted each bulb with flexible LED filaments – something the brand claims makes the bulb last as long as 25 years before it needs to be replaced.

“When we saw the new filament LED technology, we knew we had to use it,” said Plumen’s creative director Nicolas Roope.
