The Epigram Lantern from Renowned Artist Milton Glaser


The Epigram Lantern from Renowned Artist Milton Glaser

Remember stencils?  There was something so Zen about tracing the inner outlines of each letter and number and then carefully filling them in, stopping every once in a while to make sure our execution was perfect. Milton Glaser likely took a more industrial approach to his Epigram Lantern, featuring a typographic cut-out of the word GLOW in powder coated steel, resulting in rectangular pillars of light with a little extra illumination, courtesy of Glaser’s quirky creativity.  Speaking of which, Glaser’s creativity knows no bounds: he’s designed everything from Newsweek and Philip Roth book cover art to upscale restaurant serviceware and even a series of limited-edition Brooklyn Lager beer bottle packaging.  He was awarded the National Medal of Arts by U.S. President Barack Obama in 2010, and a sampling of his artistic genius can illuminate your home for $175 (for the 25” tall, 8” diameter version, or $125 for the smaller, 18” tall, 7” diameter version). Lanterns are available through Viesso; you can learn more about the man and his work from his website.
