Designing lights, throwing parties AND running a successful restaurant and bar – what don’t these guys do with style?
Brian Richer and Kei Ng, founders and designers of Castor Design Studio based in Toronto launched their newest collection of lighting entitled Deadstock during the weekend of IDS at their restaurant Parts & Labour. They showcased their newest pieces alongside some of Toronto’s talented local bands for a good night of drinking and moshing in the basement of Parts & Labour.

Expanding their exploration of reclaimed industrial parts, each piece in Deadstock uses “discarded forgotten materials to form considered, elegant products with a purpose”. Behold, photos of Castor’s new

“The Cannon Ball Pendant light incorporates old lighting shades stamped into metal balls, glass lenses and finished in black or white textured coating”
“The sturdy Catherine table lamp has a brass body with stunning marble base, incorporating a cold cathode fluorescent light-source”
“Mixing of materials is apparent in The Turned Floor Lamp with an oak body, metal base and fully adjustable Deadstock shades”
