FAD Table Lamp combines solidity and space, gravity and elegance.

Designed to light the original offices of Barcelonas Fostering Arts and Design Association (FAD), a reference centre in Spain.¬†Dimmer¬†included. FAD Menor, the new, smaller version of the FAD lamp, is ideal for lighting with less volume or light intensity. Miguel Mil√† has come up with the perfect composition in this paradigm of industrial craftsmanship that seems to have been designed for anywhere and to remain there¬†forever.


Miguel Mil√°

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.
