The design I’m showing has been on my mind for quite some time. And why didn’t I write about it? Maybe because the design is too simple. Don’t get me wrong here, I really think it’s great. Only when you know what the design is all about, that’s when you’ll be fascinated.
Recycled fire extinguisher shines
The creation is by Castor, Toronto | Canada. Castor was established in 2006 and works in the field between art and design. The designers that also designed ‘Tube Light‘ and ‘Invisible Chandelier‘. This time it’s the ‘Tank Light‘, a pendant made from a recycled fire extinguisher. Just cut off one end and add some color. How cool is that! I know, it sounds easy and it looks simple, but designing is one thing. But creating it is quite something else. Well anyway, I really think it’s a very nice, simple and again elegant little lamp. They did it again.
