The Standard hotel just launched their collaboration with artist KAWS for limited edition filament light bulbs. Along with the light bulbs, 2 different types of KAWS pillows in multiple colors and KAWS companion key chains will be exclusively available for sale at New York shop. A Sorayama/KAWS metal sculpture is also on display now at the shop, which is not for sale.
KAWS says “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.”
Each set is packaged with 3 bulbs each – Red, Purple, and Green filaments bearing the KAWS’ signature XX. Dimensions of each globe is about 4.75” x 2.25” and they screw into any standard incandescent fixture. Each bulb is crystal clear emanating 3 watts of electricity for a dreamy low light experience. To use his own words, “I like the low colored glow it gives, similar to a candle” says the Brooklyn-based artist who is now compared to the Jeff Koons or Keith Haring of our generation.
They are available for purchase at Shop The Standard.
