The Pierced Light, by Toronto-based Castor Design, was born from experiments in glass blowing focusing on organic forms. The rounded body of glass is finished with an internal LED light to become a minimalist table lamp in copper, chrome, or gold.
The lamp’s form takes shape when the molten glass is rolled and blown to increase its size, where it’s then pierced at an angle as it solidifies. After hardening, the glass is sandblasted to help soften the light when turned on.
The protruding glass that extends from the body references its fabrication and handmade nature. The organic glass body juxtaposes the linear and minimal LED rod, giving the lamp a sculptural feel.
