Nagoya is made of thin vertical strips of poplar wood attached to a discreet circular structure comprising metal rods. Poplar is a beautiful, soft wood that is almost knot-free. In 1961, the lamp was the first winner of the Golden Delta ADI-FAD award for the best industrial design produced in Spain at the time, and it remains an elegant and unfussy solution.

The poplar tree, characteristic to river banks and wetlands, produces a white wood that is soft and almost knot-free. The wood needs to be felled before autumn in order to preserve its whiteness and flexibility. Pioneering designer Ferrán Freixa chose to create the Nagoya Lamp from this abundant material. Thin vertical strips are attached to a small, circular metal rod structure to create an oriental-style lamp with a Zen feel. The lamp was the first winner of the Golden Delta ADI-FAD award for the best industrial design produced in Spain back in 1961.
ADI FAD, the Industrial Design Association and Promotion of Art and Design, a reference centre for industrial design in Europe, promotes creative culture by organising the prestigious Delta Awards for Industrial Design. The aim of the Delta Awards is to highlight the excellence of design and emphasize its importance as a tool for generating wealth in an industrial economy.
Member of the ADI-FAD Industrial Design Association since 1967, Ferran Freixa Jové received multiple awards from the association, including two Golden Deltas and one Silver Deltas over the course of his professional career. In 1961, his Nagoya lamp, now edited by Santa & Cole, was the very first winner
of the Golden Delta ADI-FAD award for industrial design. In the 1980s he worked to recover various monuments dismantled at the end of the Civil War, in collaboration with Antoni de Moragas Gallissà. In 1997 he founded Produccions Estudi Freixa, and his designs earned him another Silver Delta in that year.
