KAWS light bulb set for The Standard

February 1st, 2012 by retail design blog

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. The 3 watt bulbs have a warm low glow. Dimensions of each globe is about 4.75″ x 2.25″ and they screw into any standard incandescent fixture. 120 volts. We love how they look on a light string using multiple sets. 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. Outer box is designed to ship as is without additional packaging.

“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” -KAWS
