Miguel Milá 1962:
Miguel Milá represents Spanish design as nobody else. A 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 in the bosom of an aristocratic Catalan family closely related to the artistic world (his uncle Pedro Milá y Camps, he commissioned Gaudí the famous Casa Milá, known as La Pedrera), he began working as an interior designer in his brother's architecture studio Alfonso and Federico Correa. It was a time of crisis, at the end of the fifties, when we hardly knew what industrial design was.
Before the shortage of objects, means and raw materials of the time, soon it begins to design its own furniture and lamps, that it does not take in producing through its company, Section, mounted with two friends, the architects F. Ribas Barangé and E Pérez Ullibarri. Without knowing it, he had channeled his career towards industrial design.
Of section '' familiar apocope of '' Annoying works '' or all that it is up to a little brother '' will arise the previous versions of the famous TMC lamps of 1958 and TMM of 1961, '' timeless classics '' that continue selling generations later. Later he founded his own design studio and interior design.
Participates with the designers and architects of the time in the first meetings in Barcelona to promote the design and implement their professional practice, derived from the debate on architectural modernity and that will end in the creation of ADI FAD 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 disseminating Spanish design abroad and connecting young Spanish professionals abroad.
"Actually I am a pre-industrial designer, I feel more comfortable with those technical procedures that allow me to correct mistakes, experiment during the process and control it to the maximum, hence my preference for noble materials, which know how to age", as lamps Basket (1964), wood, Manila (1961), cane, the M68 (1968), aluminum, or screens methacrylate or natural linen American series (1963).
After a period that coincides with the excesses of the eighties, during which he dedicated himself to interior design and exhibition design, he takes up the industrial design of the same time with an equally rationalist foundation and a more current language, exemplified by the Neoromántico bank (1995), today of habitual presence in the urban landscapes. They followed a few years later, the banks Neoromántico pata liviana (2000) and the Neoromántico aluminum pata liviana (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 overcome the circumstances in which they were produced and maintain their validity today, "thanks to having been born at a time when rigor and honesty were valued", says Mila. In 1987 he was recognized with the first edition of the National Design Award and in 2008 he received the Compasso D'Oro in recognition of his professional career and his contribution to the dissemination of Spanish design abroad.
