The warm light of Santa & Cole lamps represented something completely opposite to what was in fashion at that time: the “halogen with twisted tube”. However, our commitment to human warmth and visual comfort was received with great enthusiasm. The BASICA lamp, the first design signed by the Santa & Cole Team, came from the hands of Santiago Roqueta, an essential figure to understand the development of the concept of design in Catalonia. In that same year, authors such as Miguel Milá or Beth Galí contributed decisively to the Santa & Cole catalogue with emblematic products such as the TMM standard lamp or the LAMPARAALTA street lamp.
You will mainly see lamps, for very different circumstances and intentions, and from very different designers. Despite this, we dare to ask for your purest eyes, to ask you for what is most difficult, to look at the light. That is where our effort can be found.
