Cestita Batería is the latest member in the Cesta family: a portable, cordless version. As with all of Milá’s objects, Cestita, designed in 1962, strikes a balance between rational functionalism and the legacy of local artisan creation. With this new version, technology helps to enhance its features, maintaining the warmth that is characteristic of the family.

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.

No special care is required, you can dust the lamp off using a soft goathair duster.
