This lamp pays homage to the legendary series of swing-arm lamps designed by George W. Hansen in 1950.
The Americana table lamp is built around an articulated arm, where the arm is a single section with a right-angled bend. This defines its basic geometry and transfers the joint to the vertical axis of the shaft, affording enhanced mechanical performance.
A member of the generation of industrial design pioneers in Spain who has seen some of his furniture and lamps become real contemporary classics.
Miguel Milá was born in a Catalan aristocratic family with strong links with the artistic world (his ancestors assigned the Milá House, also known as La Pedrera, to Gaudí), and started working as an interior designer in the architecture studio of his brother Alfonso Milá and Federico Correa. It was the end of the 50s, a time of crisis when Spain hardly knew what industrial design was. There was practically no industry, everything was generally handmade. This framework marked the way Miguel Milá understood design, being sensitive to the pleasure of touching and closer to traditional techniques.
