A number of Inhabitat writers are based in Inhabitat writers NYC, so we’re definitely digging these subway-inspired lanterns designed by Brooklyn-based Jeff Mayer. Featuring a colorful LED light, these are in fact the same lanterns used by the NYC engineers underground in the subway tunnels, but have been customized for home use by 718 Made in Brooklyn. Measuring 12″h x 6″w x 6″d, each LED lantern is a fun and quirky way to bring some urban edge into your home.
