This is a simple lamp designed by Davide Giulio Aquini for Ilide. It made of terracotta, a a type of earthenware where the fired body is porous. The material and the neutral colors bring out the natural effect. More description by designer:

Matera Olla lamps collection takes shape like an expression of contrasts and adopts earthenware as a coloring component. An homage to simplicity of the Italian territories, where also nature inserts itself into social and cultural contexts of the human being, becoming subject of language and expression. A collection of harmonic shapes which retrace ancient mountains and human settlement profiles, attached to earth and heated by the Sun. Matera is a set of lamps mixed together with a unique technique, a Made in Italy exclusive, that allows to blend and harmonize different kinds of earth without compromising object resistance and solidity during the firing phase.
