Design by Castor, 2012.
Made in Canada by Castor Design.
The Deadstock series was inspired when Castor found stock of unused steel components in a defunct factory in Toronto. The old lamp parts were discovered in dust-covered boxes that had not been touched in 30 years. The series of lights has the trademark industrial edge combined with the quality of refined innovative design. Each product combines simple movement within the parts to provide options for angle of light, look and use. By re-interpreting the definition of the parts, adding new materials and techniques they create a new story for each product.
The Deadstock Jib light is an adjustable cantilevered wall mount fixture designed around a spherical shade salvaged from a defunct lighting factory.

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.
