The Standard x KAWS Light Bulbs- 01.21.11

kawsstore00.jpg 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….


The display in the Standard New York store is mesmerizing… kawsstore1.jpg






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!

I already got a set of these cool bulbs but unfortunately I nearly burned one of them, I put them in 660 V holders and the red one turned almost completely black in only 5 mins, I wonder what voltage of the light bulb holders should I really use for these light bulbs.

Matthew - hit up your local hardware store?

I’m looking for a way to display the bulbs and love the single socket with cord and clamp you have in the photo. Where did you get that?
