Oyula by Sergio Silva is an intriguing light piece that transforms contemporary light bulbs into tradition oil lamps. The modern day item normally is filled with a filament that illuminates from the inside. The Oyula by Sergio Silva is instead filled with paraffin oil and a fiber glass wick producing light in a more primitive way--through fire.

Sergio Silva's creation means that even in a blackout, people can still count on light bulbs to be a source of light. You could replace all the candles in your house with Oyula and be prepared for a power outage. Sergio Silva has definitely changed the way that a standard light bulb provides the same function, although it probably does not have the same amount of stamina.
