Castor is French for beaver

Castor Design was established 2009 in Toronto. Led by Brian Richer and Kei Ng, Castor Design is committed to innovation in design. Its work tests the limits of materials, both in terms of aesthetic and structural properties, blurring the line between the practicality of engineering and the indulgence of art.

Castor Design’s products involve thoughtful experimenting with process and techniques, finding new ways to use familiar materials. The Recycled Tube Light earned Castor their reputation for recontextualizing; the attention to narrative is maintained throughout their lines of lighting, furniture, and accessories.

Together, Richer and Ng have designed installations, been showcased in exhibitions and conventions, and have had their products featured in hotels, retail environments, restaurants, and corporate headquarters around the world.

In addition to their product line and installations, the company also works on interiors projects, custom lighting and furniture design, and public art commissions. Castor Design has won awards from the Architizer A+ Awards, A’ Design, Azure Magazine’s AZ Awards, Interior Design Magazine, and from numerous design shows.
