Grotesk has been a busy man. We had him do a special t-shirt at our showcase during SXSW, and he continues his design duties around the world of sports and art culture. (He also designed two of our favorite covers of all-time, the newsstand and subscriber of issue n101). He has released a version of the "6ft 6in" lamp with Case Studyo in the past, but now he has just released a black/red "banned" colorway version of the lamp, standing 75cm – 30inch high and featuring hand painted wood. Made in an edition of 23, naturally.

A week ago, we showed you a teaser video of the new Case Studyo project with Chicago-based artist Cody Hudson. Today, Case Studyo are thrilled to announce the launch of a very special porcelain sculpture with the artist. This incense burner called ‘Vibes melt down 2043’ will enhance your office, home, maybe even a public place. It’s meant to stimulate the mind and evoke the hallucinatory and enlightening moments that are around us at all times through life and death.

Here we are, at another New Year, ready for 12 great months ahead. This particular year for Juxtapoz is a little different, as we are celebrating 20 years of independent publishing throughout 2014, and what better than kick off the calendar year with a cover by Mel Kadel and an issue appreciating the subtle details of contemporary art. From New Wave Handmade Art, classic pop surrealism, and DIY public art, February 2014 properly sends us into our 20th year...

Maybe you noticed that we covered Grotesk and the design agency he is part of, Doubleday & Cartwright, in the November 2013 print edition of Juxtapoz. We have also, in the past, shown you the former cover artist's awesome “6ft 6in” Lamp made in conjunction with Case Studyo. The past colorway was in the traditional Chicago Bulls red/black, and today, Case Studyo and Grotesk release the new "Black & Royal Blue edition" for collectors of all things Michael Jordan and the Nike Air Jordan 1.

When real people won't play with you, turn to people as blocks. People Blocks is a new collaboration between Case Studyo (the makers of fine limited quantity artist "objects")and artist Andy Rementer. The limited series features four unique wooden characters entirely made and painted by hand. The individual pieces are interchangeable, allowing them to be re-assembled and stacked to create custom characters or abstract sculptures.

Case Studyo continues their fantastic series of special artist designed editions that have been sculptures and housewares, and now they have teamed with Southern California artist, photographer, and skateboarder Ed Templeton on a lamp piece. The piece features one of Ed's now signature head designs, and from the looks of it, lights up completely so you can have a bit of Beautiful Losers vibe shining in your house all the night long...

Working with wood for the first time ever, former Juxtapoz featured artist Steven 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.

Case Studyo has published “Lay Down – Lay it all down”, a new porcelain sculpture by dutch artist Parra. A new figure true to Parra’s world of hybrid, surreal characters. The title of the work is derived from the iconic song Lay Down 'from the 60's hippie era by' Melanie.
