It's not too often that I'm compelled to write about light bulbs but these are pretty cool. The Standard hotel just launched their collaboration with artist KAWS for limited edition filament light bulbs. The limited edition light bulbs are being sold as a three-bulb set by The Standard. There will 1,000 sets of the red, purple and green filament bulbs in KAWS signature XX mark (he often uses it in images of the standard cartoon trope of the x marks over the eyes symbolizing death). Each set is $65. "You're raised not to stare at light bulbs, but this is the opposite of that," KAWS told the NY Times.
Along with the light bulbs, two different types of KAWS pillows in multiple colors and KAWS companion key chains will also be exclusively available for sale at New York shop. Brooklyn-based artist and designer Brian Donnelly, a.k.a. KAWS, has created graffiti writings and street art; graphic, industrial and product design, including limited toy editions and streetwear fashion, sketches, drawings, paintings, murals, and sculptures.
