Americana


Miguel Milá. 1964


The Americana series was devised by Miguel Milá in the mid-1960s to pay tribute to George Hansen’s epic 1950s lamp collection. The Hansen lamps are based on a rotating arm with a swivel situated in the middle dividing the horizontal axis into two sections: one end is pinned onto the vertical shaft of the lamp holding it aloft and the other end is fastened onto the shade support. As a result, the whole arm can swing around, be folded in or opened out from the middle.

Enthralled by the idea of enhancing Hansen’s already remarkable geometry, Milá’s Americana series is also based on a swing arm, albeit with a single section forming a right angle with the shaft this time round. Accordingly, the swivel allowing the shade to swing around horizontally is affixed at the top of the shaft, reducing the lever effect. Although the arm cannot be opened out or folded in on itself, it can be moved towards you or away from you without shifting the large metal base.

The Americana series comprises a table lamp, a floor lamp and a wall lamp, all bearing the same features.

Barcelona, 1931

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.
