1973 Miguel Mila. Originally conceived to light the erstwhile central headquarters of FAD (Fostering Arts and Design) – one of the foremost associations of Barcelona city since 1903 and a spearhead for decades in promoting architecture and perspective arts in Spain – the FAD table and floor lamps once again strike a chord as an example of truly understood industrial craftsmanship by no means folkloric.
A solid cylinder oak structure, with four openings hollowed out lengthwise, produces a symmetrical vertical shaft that supports an almost cylindrical white linen shade. The striking cross-shaped base, exuding Miguel Milá’s creation, is the same size as the lower circumference of the shade. Unadulterated simplicity without surrendering to pointless frills. Details: Natural oak wood structure. White linen lampshade. Electric cable length: 2,25 m. Measurement: 42 cm high, 23 cm wide.
