The 1960s were a culturally meticulous decade; even in Spain, events notwithstanding. A new generation was re-thinking how to inhabit the world and also how to illuminate it. The M64 is a pendant lamp designed by Milá. Its light springs from the upper centre and diffuses within an opaque bell, depicting a silhouette on the exterior evocative of the neck and shoulders of a woman.
The M64 lamp is part of our Design Classics collection, a group 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.
Barcelona, 1931 Industrial and interior designer, inventor and bricoleur.
Miguel Milá began his career in the 1950s and was one of the pioneers in his field in Spain. His designs still hold the accolade of being considered genuine contemporary classics of design up to the present day. Thorough and curious, always attentive, he is an expert master of simple, useful, everyday objects.
Premio Nacional de Diseño, Compaso d’Oro and Medalla de Oro al Mérito de las Bellas Artes. His career history and his contribution to the promotion of design turned him into one of the masters of industrial design in Spain.
