THE PRODUCT

Tatu, Spanish for armadillo, is a friendly mammal with a shell on its back that protects it when it rolls up into a ball. André Ricard had the idea for Tatu during a transoceanic flight; while reading about Argentinean wildlife, he observed that the light above his seat did not disturb his sleeping wife who was sitting next to him.

To comemorate the 90th birthday of André Ricard, a key figure in the history of industrial design in Spain, we present Petit Tatu, a smaller, wall-mounted version of the lamp. Like its desktop equivalent, this wall light’s ability to fully rotate and its easy adjustability —of both light intensity and spot size—will delight users.

On its own or as part of a series, in white or red, Petit Tatu is perfect for corridors and to direct light wherever it is needed.

Size: h 10,1 cm and l 15,4 cm.

THE MATERIAL

Gyratory structure manufactured in red or S&C white ABS plastic.
Adjustable focal length from 30º to 50º.
Suitable for dimming 1-10V. (Not included external dimmer switch 1-10V)

THE MAKER
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.
