Based on the traditional lantern that illuminates homes along the coast, country estates and open terraces, the Cesta is one of the most iconic lamps created by Milá. Formally, it is a very special object. A curved cherry wood structure holds and protects a glass globe that diffuses light and forms a handle that allows it to be taken anywhere. This light is a companion. It is produced and assembled by hand. And despite its peculiarity, or precisely because of it, its appearance and function remain totally contemporary even today.
This iconic design by Miguel Milá is part of our Design Classics collection, a host of objects created during different periods of modernity. Through re-editing, we remain faithful to the original design, although we incorporate technological improvements, linking up far-flung creators and new users.
