Castor says, “You’re never lonely if you got a fluorescent light!” The Recycled Tube Light uses burned out fluorescent bulbs from “architecturally significant buildings” and can either hang, stand alone, or be oriented vertically depending on the model. They are available in lengths of 15 inches to 8 feet long and meld artistic design with purpose. Inside the barrel of bulbs is a working bulb that casts a glow through the structure. Castor Canadensis is a design collective based out of Toronto with a stunning portfolio of projects. We picked out the Tube due to the innovative recycling of old light to new light.

About the Author:
Doug is in perpetual motion and a self-proclaimed adventure junkie, that has had a longtime love affair with the great outdoors.
“I love being a part of the active world. The stuff that blows my hair back is adventure (all shapes and sizes), photography, mountaineering, Muay Thai, and seeing natural beauty in all its forms. The living earth is the framework on which I build my life and free time. My ideal trip would be BASE jumping at Sotano de Las Golandrinas in Mexico (closest I could come to skydiving through the jungle!). I work towards keeping it real, green, and healthy. ”
Doug is the co-founder of LiveOAK, although he says he didn’t know what a blog was until a couple months after he started.
