Italian designer Davide Giulio Aquini has created a lamp from terracotta called Olla as part of the Matera Collection for manufacturer Ilide.   Intended to be an homage to the simplicity of Italian territories where man and nature are inextricably linked socially and culturally, the lamp's form mimics an earthenware vessel but still manages to convey a certain amount of sophistication.  The lamp is manufactured using a unique technique that allows the terracotta and other materials to combine without compromising the object's durability.
