The last two days I’ve been busy giving an old secondhand display cabinet a new look. It’s always more work then you thought it would be. But the end result is great. Maybe I’ll post some photos this weekend. This paint job is also the reason for not writing on upcycleDZINE. But before the weekend I just wanted to post a short article. 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.
The design is from 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 and making it is something different. Well anyway, I really think it’s a very nice, simple and again elegant little lamp. They did it again.
