Light Me Up

Known for his signature X’s, contemporary artist Kaws’ newest project, in collaboration with Standard Hotels, is one of functional nature: a light bulb. He changed the shape of the filament inside the bulb and incorporated his X’s. The light bulbs work in any standard incandescent fixture, giving an ordinary room an extraordinary vibe. The dimly glowing three-watt bulbs were available in non-numbered, limited-edition sets of three (red, purple and green) for $65. They sold out but they can still be found on eBay.
