“REMAIN IN BALANCE”
A Lighting project by Steven Harrington.
Published by Case Studyo.
About The Collaboration
With his latest Case Studyo collaboration, California artist Steven Harrington takes his
exploration of balance to a whole new level. Working with wood for the first time ever,
Harrington has turned the totem-like structures of his Remain in Balance series into three
whimsical, anthropomorphic lamps. Each one represents the harmony we seek in our
daily lives, an inspired and inspiring reminder of the importance of equanimity.
Harrington’s Remain in Balance lamps are hand carved and hand painted with the utmost
care; the hand-splattered linen drum lamp shade adds a bright punch of color to the
natural, organic feel of the sculpture. Each lamp is a functional work of art that
illuminates, literally and figuratively.

About Case Studyo
CASE STUYDO is a publisher and producer of artworks by a broad range of
contemporary artists. Because CASE STUYDO is inspired by the changing boundaries
of the art world, different forms of creative expression, and the abolishment of
predefined rules, their catalog isn’t limited to a certain style or visual language.
The CASE STUDYO artworks are the result of a unique collaboration between the
studio and the artist. Existing artwork is not reproduced, rather each piece is a new
creation, an interaction between CASE STUDYO and the artist which creates its own
story—a case study—resulting in a unique object, released in limited editions. Our
collaborations result in fine artworks, furniture, or other functional objects that strive to
push boundaries a bit further while sharing today’s most interesting art. CASE STUDYO
doesn’t operate out of a gallery; they work directly with artists and collaborate with their
representing galleries. Available works can be acquired through their contact page.

About Creative Future Issue #04:

After eight months of hard work and lots of great and creative experiences, the fourth issue of The Creative Future Project has finally come together. Since June last year we have been busy creating what we believe is our most profound issue yet, and we are confident enough to say that this issue meets all of our creative principles and conceptual visions. With a willingness to learn we have not only attempted to engage within multidisciplinary parameters and practices of art and design, but also tried to develop our creative and artistic abilities to express and visualize the creative knowledge, ideas and visions from some of todays most inspiring and versatile artists. Striving to embrace the artistic process, approaches and idea development behind this issues unique lineup of artists and designers, we have once again created not only a curation of creative ideas, but also a limited piece of art that comprises an extensive array of artistic areas within the broader field of art and design.

With quality, craftsmanship and artistry in mind, Creative Future Issue #04 seeks to inspire, educate and lift the creative spirits within. Following the artistic philosophy and foundational ideas behind the project, this issue seeks bypass the traditional publishing channels, giving the artists free editorial say, 100% creative control and a platform to express, discuss and share intimate creative ideas. Looking to feed your curiosity and embrace the creation of art from a different, independent and versatile standpoint, Creative Future Issue #04 is truly a historic release. Limited to just 300 copies worldwide, each issue comes hand packaged, signed and numbered by the project founder and creative director, Christian Andersen.
