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 Glaserâs quirky creativity. Speaking of which, Glaserâs creativity knows no bounds: heâs 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 25â tall, 8â diameter version, or $125 for the smaller, 18â tall, 7â diameter version). Lanterns are available through Viesso; you can learn more about the man and his work from his website.
