Santa Cole TMM Wooden Floor Lamp
|Delivery time:||within 4 weeks|
This is perhaps the most highly acclaimed pieces from one of Spain’s leading pioneering masters of industrial design. Miguel Milá managed to brilliantly separate the three vital components of any lamp: the structure, the electrical components and the shade, in an exquisite demonstration of earnest serenity and functional efficiency, allowing the user to put them together with tremendous ease and enabling better maintenance throughout its extensive service life. It becomes ever more glorious in time. A cross-shaped base supports a square wooden shaft that becomes a circle in the middle. The shade can be moved up or down it, held at the required height by a simple rubber ring. A genuine lesson in intelligence and good taste making minimal use of components. This was Miguel Milá’s first product that Santa & Cole re-released in 1986, 25 years after it initially saw the light of day. Today it is offered in a range of five different woods for the structure and two colours of shade: white or beige.
Size: ø shade 30 cm, h 166 cm and w 60 cm.

The lampshade is delivered with cable, bulb socket and fastening system to the structure.

Miguel Milá represents like no other person Spanish contemporary design. He belongs to the pioneer's generation of the 50s, and has seen how many of his pieces of furniture and lamps have become real classics. Miguel Milá was born in a Catalan aristocratic family with strong links with the artistic world (his ancestors assigned the Milá House, also known as La Pedrera, to Gaudí), and started working as an interior designer in the architecture studio of his brother Alfonso Milá and Federico Correa. It was the end of the 50s, a time of crisis when Spain hardly knew what industrial design was.
