Miguel Milà, industrial and interior designer, inventor and bricoleur, began his career in the 1950s, and soon became a pioneer of Spanish design. To overcome the scarcity of resources at the time, he decided to design his own pieces. He soon began to produce objects at his company Tramo (Trabajos Molestos), and they remain true contemporary classics today. In 2016, the Ministry of Education and Culture awarded him the Gold Medal for Merit in Fine Arts.
In a flourish of formal serenity and functional efficacy, Miguel Milá cleverly separated the three basic components of any lamp: the structure, the electrical parts and the shade. The light source rotates around the shaft and can be raised or lowered like a flag on a mast.
