This lamp's handle-shaped structure makes it easy to move anywhere that requires great lighting.
In 1961, this lamp was part of Miguel Milá’s first collection for TRAMO (Trabajos Molestos – ‘Annoying Jobs’), the company he set up to produce his own work when he was starting out. Santa & Cole is now republishing ASA, both the original version with a black structure and button and the later all-white version.
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.
