Solid wooden table lamp with white linen shade and an airy, open center. Designed in Barcelona by Miguel Milá, a pioneer of Spanish contemporary design. (
Originally designed to light the offices of Barcelona’s Fostering Arts and Design Association (FAD), this distinctive table lamp plays with seemingly opposing qualities. Its solid natural oak frame provides a dense sturdiness to the structure of the base, while the open center creates a sense of weightlessness. The white linen drum shade, soft in curvature, color, and texture, is counterbalanced by the straight edges of the wooden cross-shaped base.
The lamp was designed by Miguel Milá, a pioneer of 1950s Spanish contemporary design. Born into a Catalan aristocratic family with strong links to the art world, Milá began his career as an interior designer. His later became the creator of countless classic pieces of furniture and lighting, all tied together by the defining characteristics of modern designs made with a commitment to traditional craftsmanship.
This lamp comes from Santa & Cole, a small, independent editor of well-designed and beautifully made products. Based in Barcelona, Spain, it works in over 70 countries to foster the appreciation of the world’s finest lighting. Founded in 1985, Santa & Cole’s mission is to seek out goods that have a single common thread: the shared philosophy that selection trumps accumulation and quality is far greater than quantity.
Oak and linen are highly durable and low-maintenance materials
The oak base can be dry-dusted for regular cleaning and periodically treated with furniture oil to maintain its luster.
To remove dust from the linen shade, use a clean paintbrush or vacuum brush attachment, following the grain of the fabric. Spot-clean any stains with mild soap and water.
