A shade that is hoisted like a sail on a mast
Based on his famous TMM lamp, Miguel Milá was commissioned to design the TMD tabletop version. The designer came up with the idea of a shade that is raised like a flag 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, taking up less space on a crowded desk. 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. A thin metal ring is used to wrap and direct the cable along the shaft. The elegant lampshade, made of white linen fabric, creates a warm ambient light. With this exquisite blend of materials, the TMD lamp adds warmth to any room, even with the light off.
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 Modestos), 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.
