KAWS Light Bulbs from The Standard
How many KAWS fans does it take to change a light bulb? One to install the KAWS light bulb and one to flip it on [eBay].
The Standard‘s series of artist editions continues with Brooklyn-based artist, KAWS. This is a limited, but non-numbered edition of 1,000 sets that contain 3 bulbs each, of one bulb in each color: red, purple and green.
I love The Standard and the different projects they have been doing. When invited to create something I wanted to redesign something basic that could be found in every hotel room in the world so we decided to make a light bulb. I like the low colored glow it gives, similar to a candle.
Each bulb is 3 watts and, the dimensions of the globes are about 4.75″ x 2.25″. They screw into any standard incandescent fixture, and will really complete that look you’re going for with the matching KAWS doormat and ashtray. The bulbs are individually boxed with a KAWS and The Standard sticker and then wrapped again in an outer box that holds all three, also co-branded. Get your set for $65 at any The Standard hotel or online here.
This actually makes me like KAWS more, its like he’s doing some social experiment to see the limits of his fans willingness to buy pieces no matter how little creativity and work he puts into it. Bravo.
