The Standard + KAWS - Limited Edition Lightbulbs

The Standard partnered with KAWS to release a limited edition set of three lightbulbs, featuring KAWS' signature XX mark as the bulb's filament in red, purple and green. 1,000 sets were released yesterday, and rumor has it that they are sold out already, although they still seem to be available on The Standard's website.

Jean brought over a set to our place yesterday, so I got to play with them, and they are very cool - check out her photos of the unboxing on Notcot.

AndrĂ© Balazs Properties have always had gorgeously unique light bulbs… Chateau Marmont has a playful Pan (god of fertility, unbridled male sexuality and carnal desire to name a few) in a bulb… The Mercer has its signature M… it’s about time that The Standard Hotel’s had theirs as well! Announced last night, and literally flying off their digital and physical shelves, the KAWS Light Bulb Set for the Standard are 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. While a few blocks away, i popped over to check out the new display of them in The Standard New York Shop window… as well as unboxing them and playing with them up close! The glow just draws you in, and the X’s are so signature KAWS. Ready to take a peek at it all up close? See the many pics on the next page!


Here is a peek at the Mercer’s and Chateau Marmont’s….

And now for the hands on… in the privacy of Anna’s home… as we cannibalized a light, and climbed under the dining table… there is something so fun about trying to figure out how to shoot the magical glow and unbox of these bulbs in day light!
