Beautifully designed and an exquisite social commentary, the Recycled Tube Light by Castor is created using burnt-out flourescent light bulb tubes. The fixture is created by carefully conjoining the tubes together before transforming it into the fixture we see before us.

Describing the cultural significance behind the Recycled Tube Light by Castor, "The circularly arranged fluorescent bulbs have been reclaimed from architecturally significant buildings in Canada—like the Mies van der Rohe’s TD Tower, Toronto’s Old City Hall and the University of Toronto." As such, the Recycled Tube Light by Castor signifies a marrying of two unique and beautiful ideas: that of recycling and of our connection to heritage locations to further enhance our future with aspects of our history.
