None More Black
2014 Black Metal Collection
Castor’s Black Metal Collection is inspired by the line from Spinal Tap “There’s something about this that’s so black, it’s like how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.” Nigel Tufnel was commenting on their new black record cover and clearly making a statement about design in general- black is absolute. See an article featuring the entire collection on Design-Milk and shop at the Castor Online store.
