The hugely evocative shade on the M68 lamp immortalises the silhouette of a woman’s shoulders. It is an aluminium re-edition of the famous methacrylate pop lamp from the 1960s – also by Miguel Milá – and it is now available in lively red, matte white or black, as well as in polished aluminium. Since the shade is opaque, its bell-shape cross section gives it a large inside surface to diffuse the light. The electrical cable runs from the top middle area of the shade along with a tiny metal cylinder that links the shade and the steel wire that holds it aloft. In short, M68 is the friendliest way of lighting a large table.
About the designer: Miguel Milá represents like no other person Spanish contemporary design. He belongs to the pioneer's generation of the 50s, and has seen how many of his pieces of furniture and lamps have become real classics. Miguel Milá was born in a Catalan aristocratic family with strong links with the artistic world (his ancestors assigned the Milá House, also known as La Pedrera, to Gaudí), and started working as an interior designer in the architecture studio of his brother Alfonso Milá and Federico Correa. It was the end of the 50s, a time of crisis when Spain hardly knew what industrial design was.
