Bio

Miguel Milá (Barcelona, 1931) began his career in the architecture studio of his brother at the end of the 50s, when industrial design was barely known in our country. The shortage of objects, means and raw materials made him start designing his own pieces of furniture and lamps. Soon he established his own company, Tramo, acronym for “Trabajos Molestos” (‘annoying works’), where he produced the first versions of the lamps TMC (1958) and TMM (1961), today timeless classics and still for sale. Later on, he founded his own studio. “The truth is I am a pre-industrial designer. I feel more comfortable when working with technical procedures that allow me to correct my mistakes, make experiments along the process and control it as much as I can. That is also why I prefer fine materials, because they really know how to age”.

Milá has played a central role in the history of Spanish design: his pieces feel as contemporary as if they were fresh new. In 1987, he was awarded the first Premio Nacional de Diseño and in 2008, he received the Compasso d’Oro in appreciation of his long career and contribution to the promotion of Spanish design abroad.

DESIGNER : Miguel Milá. Member of a generation pioneering design in the 50’s, Miguel Milá has seen how some of his lamp and furniture designs have become true classics.

Milá has been a critical actor in modern design history. His work’s cornerstone has been bringing tradition up-to-date: plenty of his creations have overcome their original circumstances and keep all their validity to this day.

“At the hotel, we usually have more than enough wardrobe space and we miss practical elements such as a trouser press, a coat rack, a stool o a luggage rack. Because luxury is not always comfort but comfort is always a luxury.” Miguel Milá
