Hulger Sale

My mate Nik, the man behind Hulger, just mailed to say that they’re having a sale and phasing out some of the older colours.

So if you want the super cool radioactive stylee yellow PIP*Phones or one of the elegant P*Phones (they were one of the first models and still cool) for 40% less than the normal price, head on over to Hulger.

If you want to hear what the quality of one sounds like and hear a bit about the philosophy behind Hulger, have a listen to the Core77 podcast I did with Nik a while back. The recording is of Nik talking to me on one of the PIP*Phones via iChat.

Plumen – low energy, high style

My mate Nik Roope has been busily working up another smart idea to brighten up the lack of imagination in the marketplace again. This time it’s the Plumen Project.

Based on the same principles as the Hulger range and the Hulgerisation project, the simple, but smart, idea is to make low-energy bulbs that actually look cool. Not only is it a playful way to re-think an existing product, but it’s also a really great idea to entice people to switch.

The prototype (pictured) is looking pretty snazzy already, but go check out the site for some of the other ideas waiting in the wings.
