Resources

Milá’s Americana collection is built on the basis of the articulated arm, with a single segment at right angles to the shaft.

The swivel that allows the shade to rotate horizontally is fastened onto the head of the wall bracket, without a lever effect, and although the arm cannot be opened out or folded in on itself, the lamp can be moved towards you or away from you as required.

The Americana collection also includes a table lamp, a floor lamp, both bearing the same features.


Miguel Milá

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.
