Case Studyo are an interesting proposition, working with a roster of amazing artists to produce interesting and affordable sculptures. Brilliant Dutch artist Parra, whose work we have long held dear here at It’s Nice That, has just unveiled his latest collaboration with Case, in the form of Lay Down…Lay it all down a limited edition new porcelain piece which brings a typically Parra surreal form to 3D life. Released to coincide with Parra’s New York show, it follows the 2010 piece The not so happy bird (below) and proves once again that there’s really nothing Parra can’t do that doesn’t excite us. Dental floss? Crampons? His and her bumbags? We’re on board.
