Playing with poetry and reason.
A line of light and a thin metal sheet create a soft and effective diffusion. Lámina exploits the virtues of reflected light with simple, clean lines in varying shades and sizes, laid bare and fully exposed. This pendant lamp fascinates the eye with the elegance of its curve and soothing light.
In 1907, painter Mariano Fortuny Madrazo prolifically used reflective lighting, which he deemed essential to achieve the right colour, with his iconic homonymous lamp. Whether as a single unit or several in sequence, in small or large sizes, Antoni Arola’s combination of formal purity and functional virtue elicits emotion.
A marriage of the poetic and the practical; creating a soft and pleasant light, without glare.
Lámina won a Gold Award at the iF Design Awards 2021.
Santa & Cole is a small, independent and global editor of design products, with its roots in Belloch (Barcelona, Spain). We have been editing since 1985, when the company was first founded. By editing we mean preparing a work for the public domain, we mean adapting an item for everyone’s use.
What a book editor does with stories, we do with objects. More than eighty creators have contributed to a rich catalogue of furniture and lighting products originating in very different contexts, by renowned designers such as Antoni Arola, Miguel Milá, André Ricard and llmari Tapiovaara.
A cute and attentive to quality and detail, Santa & Cole outsources all of its industrial production to an extensive network of suppliers, mainly in Spain, but also in other countries such as Japan, where the washi paper for our Tekiò lamp is made. Our mission is to build, safeguard and disseminate knowledge through design objects. Objects whose quality is recognisable at the touch of a hand, and that enrich people’s lives, whether at home or in shared environments. Our philosophy is more modern than futurist and we are more intrigued by silence than by stridency.
Our focus is not the present market, but the future one; not Barcelona, but the world; not fashion, but history.
