the reflector floor lamp, by canadian studio castor design, features gold-foiled leather stretched across a circular frame. an LED bulb housed in the lamp’s stem directs light toward the diffuser, where its foil texture catches and reflects an ambient glow. castorfloorlampdesignboom02the reflector floor lamp

an embedded power switch occupies the top of the stem, and the diffuser clips on via friction-fit. a black, powder-coated finish gives prominence to the leather reflector. gold-foil as a primary coat is influenced directly by maison martin margiela’s ‘gold foil replica sneaker’. the material itself, nods to traditional beaver pelt stretching techniques, and to the company’s namesake.

 

the reflector stands at 60″/1524mm tall, ships flat-packed, and includes a 96″/2440mm cord for convenient placement. the piece debuted in castor’s black metal collection.
