A shade that is hoisted like a sail on a mast
Based on his famous TMM lamp, Miguel Milá designed the TMD version replacing wood with metal. The designer came up with the idea of a shade that is raised like a sail up a mast. In order to reduce the number of sections, he replaced wood with metal and the cross-shaped base for a circular one. The inventive engineering remains the same; the shade’s height is adjustable via a rubber band stopper, and the light is switched on/off by pulling lightly on the cable. The elegant lampshade, made of white linen fabric, creates a warm ambient light. This exquisite blend of shapes and materials makes for an inviting, contemplative space, even with the light turned off.
This lamp was part of Miguel Milá’s first collection for TRAMO, the company he founded to produce his own work in post-war Spain. He dabbled in a profession that he would later go on to master, that of a pre-industrial designer, seeking convenient solutions with the technology available. Milá’s words, like his pieces, have an incredible depth that lies beneath their simplicity.
