Miguel Milá 1964:
Miguel Milá represents as nobody to Spanish design. Member of the generation of design pioneers of the 50s, he has seen how some of his furniture and lamps have become authentic classics.
Born into an aristocratic Catalan family closely related to the artistic world (his uncle Pedro Milá y Camps, he commissioned Gaudí from the famous Casa Mila, known as La Pedrera), he began working as an interior designer in his brother's studio Alfonso and Federico Correa. It was a time of crisis, in the late 1950s, when little was known about industrial design.
Facing the shortage of objects, media and raw materials of the time, he soon began to design his own furniture and lamps, which he soon produced through his company, Tramo, assembled with two friends, the architects F. Ribas Barangé and E Pérez Ullibarri. Without knowing it, it had channeled its race towards the industrial design.
From the familiar section of "Annoying Works" or all that a little brother has to do, there will be pre-versions of the famous TMC lamps of 1958 and TMM of 1961, "timeless classics" that continue Selling themselves generations later. He will later establish his own design and interior design studio.
He participated together with the designers and architects of the time at the first meetings in Barcelona to promote the design and implementation of his professional practice, derived from the debate on architectural modernity and which will end in the creation of ADI FAD together with André Ricard, Antonio de Moragas , Oriol Bohigas, Alexandre Cirici Pellicer, Manel Cases, Rafael Marquina and Ramón Marinel.lo, among others. Since its foundation, this association will be dedicated to spreading Spanish design abroad and connecting young Spanish professionals with the outside world.
"I am really a pre-industrial designer, I feel more comfortable with those technical procedures that allow me to correct mistakes, to experiment during the process and to control it to the fullest. This is also my preference for noble materials that know how to age. Lamps Basket (1964), wood, Manila (1961), cane, M68 (1968), aluminum, or methacrylate or natural linen screens of the American series (1963).
After a period that coincides with the excesses of the 1980s, during which he devoted himself to interior design and exhibition design, he resumes industrial design with an equally rationalist foundation and a more modern language, exemplified by the Neoromántico bank (1995). Today of habitual presence in the urban landscapes. It was followed a few years later by Neoromántico pata liviana (2000) and Neoromántico aluminio pata pata (2002).
Miguel Milá has played a fundamental role in the history of modern Catalan design. His work has been based on updating the tradition: several of his pieces have surpassed the circumstances in which they were produced and maintain their validity today, "thanks to being born in an era in which rigor and honesty were valued," Affirms Milá. In 1987 he was recognized with the first edition of the National Design Prize and in 2008 he received the Compasso D'Oro in recognition of his professional career and his contribution to the diffusion of Spanish design abroad.
