Designed by Castor Design, 2014.
The Conic Section LED Pendant Light is a unique lighting fixture inspired by the mathematical proof of conic sections - a curve obtained at the intersection of a cone with a plane. Each pendant features a wire cone cage overlaid by a solid metal sheet to create a shade that resembles one of four conic sections: Hyperbola, Parabola, Circle and Cone. Constructed from aluminum and steel, the pendant is plated in black chrome to better reflect the light emitted from the LED bulb. This inventive design from Castor is ideal for providing decorative, ambient lighting in hallways, bedrooms and living room spaces.
- Hyperbola - A solid metal sheet wraps around the wire cone shade, but before wrapping the cone entirely, an arch, extending over half of the metal sheet, is cut out exposing the wire frame beneath
- Parabola - A solid metal sheet wraps around the wire cone shade, but before wrapping the cone entirely, an arch, extending over two-thirds of the metal sheet, is cut out exposing the wire frame beneath
- Circle - A solid metal sheet wraps completely and evenly around the wire cone shade only exposing the wire frame along the edge
- Cone - A solid metal sheet wraps completely around the wire cone shade, but the base of the metal sheet is raised higher on one side than the other to expose the wire frame beneath
- Includes an 8 foot cord

Established in 2006, Castor is Brian Richer, a trained architectural stone carver with a degree in English literature, and Kei Ng, a trained architect with a background in set design. Castor's work has been described as a cross between Guy Maddin and Larry Clark with a side of Stompin' Tom Connors. They are interested in the middle ground between high design and ribald yokelism. Materials and reuse of materials is also an important part of Castor's aesthetic. Burnt out bulbs to make lighting, a rusty shipping container to make a sauna - this re-contextualization of materials is a primary design consideration for Castor.
