Description from Lumens
Fueling a nostalgic design with deconstructed shapes and lines, the Castor Oil Lamp modernizes traditional oil lamping used before the age of electricity. Collaboration with Harnisch Lamps, the oldest gas lamp manufacturer in Canada dating back to 1842, the design embodies the historical design with a raw, industrial interpretation. Still using fire as the light source, the petite black frame is warmed by candle light, and diffused by a glass cylinder, carries a comforting ambience around environments easily.
Rock ‘n’ roll lumberjacks. That pretty much sums up the punk rock-loving, Toronto-based design team of Castor Design. Experiments in upcycling have resulted in an eclectic array of contemporary lighting and accessories. Castor Design pieces are smart, industrial and elegant–and definitely tongue-in-cheek. Salvaged materials are given a new, bright life, such as old burnt-out light bulbs being turned into a shade for another fixture.
