Miguel Milá: Emocionar con lo simple
Anna Calvera (1955-2018) was a thinker and researcher specialised in the field of graphic design. She graduated in graphic design and went on to receive her PhD in Philosophy at the University of Barcelona. She taught at the University of Barcelona and in renowned design schools like Elisava, Massana and Eina.
Miguel Milá (Barcelona, 1931) is often described as a pioneer of design, and rightly so. Renowned in his profession, Milá is the creator of some of the most acclaimed pieces in Barcelona design and everyday icons for many Spaniards. They brilliantly illustrate the imagery of good design, whether here or elsewhere.
This book intends to reveal the magnitude of his life’s work through the publication of three texts, which together offer three different and intriguing ways of exploring the designer and his work. Each one, in its way, reveals what there is in common between Milá, his approach to design and its creation and the objects that bear his signature. And, finally, it offers a selection of forty-two iconic designs ordered chronologically.
Being a classic means surviving the past into the present, but it is also the result of a present that looks towards the future.
