Colin Patrick Dinley had a very specific image in mind when he designed the Battersea lighting series for Italian company Toscot: the electrical insulators found at the Battersea Power Station in London. The lights, made of glazed terracotta, can be mixed and matched and used indoors and outdoors. See the full line at Toscot.

Above: Colin’s glazed terracotta Battersea series for Toscot was inspired by the thermo-electric built in 1933 in Battersea and recalls the old electrical installations made between the 19th and 20th centuries.
