In his long and productive collaboration with Olivari, Ponti focused on two types of approach to the design of handles.‎ One was more organic, where the lever is offered to the hand’s grip as a sinuously modelled element.‎ The other was inspired by geometric clarity, according to which the hand naturally adapts to the shape.‎ The former led to independent forms that are more expressive and influenced by ergonomic requirements.‎ The latter led Ponti in the direction of linear and coordinated forms that seek harmony in unity with the setting and its logical legibility.‎ He followed this approach when he was designing a handle for the Pirelli skyscraper in Milan.‎ The resulting model was Lama, a condensation of his vision in which classical symbolism prevails over functionalism.‎ The geometric simplicity of its shape, so thin as to resemble a blade (lama in Italian) offers a counterpoint to the carefully studied definition of the radii that soften the sharp-edged profile of its flat contours.‎
