Nicolas is a Designer and Entrepreneur. After graduating as a sculptor Nicolas has gone on to create a number of notable product and agency brands. The wide scope of his creative enquiry touches everything from global brand strategies to creating new product categories in lighting and telephony. His love and fluency with technology, coupled with his fear for the planet’s future, spawned Plumen, the lighting brand that has rewritten the rules for light bulbs. Despite being around the block, Nicolas still feels he’s only just getting started...
Plumen was founded in 2010 by Nicolas Roope and Michael-George Hemus, they created the name Plumen, a combination of “plume,” the decorative feathers of a bird and “lumen”, the measurement of light, which reflect the values of the company. The Original Plumen 001 bulb was the world’s first designer low energy light bulb. A bright idea indeed.
