In 1961 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, as he likes to introduce himself. Milá’s pieces, and the names he gives them, have an incredible depth that lies beneath their simplicity.
Asa is built of a single, continuous tube. Lightweight, yet robust, the handle-shaped structure makes it easy to carry everywhere. Santa & Cole is reediting both the all-white version, pure and simple, and the original version from 1961, where the black metallic structure and switch contrast the white shade.
