LA-based artist Steven Harrington has been exploring the idea of balance in his work for a while now, interested as he is in the metaphorical significance of balance in our increasingly hectic lives. But in his new foray into product design, Steven has applied these ideas to a lamp, creating a great-looking, super-fun piece covered with his trademark shifty eyes. Working with wood for the very first time, each piece is hand-carved and hand-painted to create objects of real beauty, the curious totems topped with splash-coloured shades. Steven says: " Each one represents the harmony we seek in our daily lives, an inspired and inspiring reminder of the importance of equanimity…Each lamp is a functional work of art that illuminates, literally and figuratively."
Igniting in me a lust for lamps I didn’t know I possessed, Steven’s limited edition run produced with Case Studyo is sure to be in high demand.
