Federico Correa and Alfonso Milá have been, since the 60s, one of the most productive teams in Spanish design and architecture. Correa and Alfonso Milá were both born in 1924, they were schoolmates and went to the same university, and finally received their doctorate from the University of Barcelona. They set up their architecture studio in 1953, thus enhancing a professional relationship and a strong friendship that has made their names inseparable. Correa and Alfonso Milá have devoted their career to architecture, interior design and industrial design, as well as to teaching. They have spread worldwide Spanish creation and promoted it in the international architecture debate.Miguel Mila
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 to a Catalan aristocratic family, with strong links with the artistic world (his ancestors assigned the Milá house to Gaudí, also known as La Pedrera), 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. There was practically no industry, everything was generally handmade. This framework marked the way Miguel Milá understood design, being sensitive to the pleasure of touching and closer to traditional techniques.

Santa & Cole Diana Table Lamp
Charles from Palm Springs, CA– Verified Buyer
I bought two Diane lamps to use on end tables in a modern living room and they are everything that I had hoped -- very high quality, excellent design, beautiful non-glary light. While they are not inexpensive, they are well worth the price.
