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.

  1. Wall lights are available in a wide range of styles, designs and materials and often look good positioned in pairs, for example at either end of a sofa. Although, as a fixed light, you should consider positioning carefully before installing wall lights. It’s better to position lights around permanent features, rather than something you may want to replace or change in the future.
