Miguel Milá, born in Barcelona in 1931, is one of the pioneers of modern Spanish design. His career began in the 1950s, when industrial design arrived in Spain for the first time. Despite the strong passion for new techniques and new generation materials, Milá often refers to craftsmanship and tradition. He is co-founder of the Spanish brand Tramo, short for “Trabajos molestos”, created together with his colleagues Francisco Ribas Barangé and Eduardo Pérez Ullibarri, for which he designed the TMM (1961) and Cesta (1964) lamps. In 1987 he was awarded the Premio Nacional de Diseño and in 2008 the Compasso d'Oro, in recognition of his long career and his contribution to the promotion of Spanish design.
