  • Moragas

    By Santa & Cole NUEVO ESTILO AWARD, Madrid 1992 At the ripe old age of forty-four, rationalist architect and the first chairman of the FAD Industrial Design Association Antoni de Moragas Gallissà (1913-1985) conceived this lamp to use in his own professional office. A large solid wood cylinder holds aloft a luminous head with three bulbs providing a well-distributed source of light, all covered by a substantial circular shade. The white cotton ribbon of this shade is typically used for bookbinding and has a silk thread running along the edge, providing an asymmetry that generates warm light and shade effects against the light. By all accounts, Moragas had this lamp on his desk and regularly used it to place notes and cards marking the visits he’d just received, placed in between the folds in the ribbon. Today, the Moragas lamp is part of our Design Classics collection, a series of objects created at different times of modernism with the twofold aim of strengthening historical memory – which is sometimes endangered – and putting forward critical discussion on creation in industrial design beyond mere trends.
  • Diana

    By Santa & Cole Treasured architect duo Federico Correa and Alfonso Milá once again enlisted the help of Alfonso’s younger brother and designer Miguel Milá in order to tackle the lighting in the new official office of the erstwhile mayor of Olympic Barcelona Pascual Maragall. The administrative centre would also be frequented by a large body of the international political community and was in urgent need of a revamp that would showcase the excellent standard of Barcelona design on the world stage. Santa & Cole produced the original lamps and in 1995 the company began the company embarked on limited production of this superbly austere series of lamps. Diana is slender, sturdy and remarkably lucid. It is formed by a large central metal base which houses a shaft, the diameter of which gets thinner as it rises, supporting a white linen shade in a smooth cone-like shape that disperses the light of two bulbs arranged in such a way as to avoid shadows forming on the shade. Its appearance seamlessly strikes a balance between classicism and modernism both at home and in the office. In keeping with the calling of their designers, all floor and table versions of the Diana series seek to conjure up “an image that is as timeless as can be”.

  • Básica

    By Santa & Cole  At a time when international preferences were leaning towards lamps with metal shafts and dichroic halogen bulbs (in other words, cool beam and touch), the Básica lamp sought to champion other, warmer alternatives. A wooden column, held up by a heavy metal base with the same diameter, supports a range of shades in different shapes and colours. Although the lamp balances well in this format, an optional, wider base may be placed underneath. The Básica lamp heralded a revival of natural materials, such as wood, stitched cardboard or ribbons, and provided Santa & Cole with a springboard for international expansion, generating an alternative current in Europe that challenged prevalent tastes. A more familiar, craftsman-like and gentle form of modernity was being advocated.

  • Cesta

    By Santa & Cole This enchanting, handcrafted lamp has been shaped using traditional steam bending techniques and is delicately polished and sturdily put together. It consists of a subtle cherry wood structure that holds an opal-shaped glass shade. Cesta is an excellent object and lamp, perfect for placing on a tabletop or resting on the floor, and the light can be dimmed according to preference. The Cesta family is formed by the Cesta, Cestita, Cesta Metálica and Cestita Metálica table lamps and the Wally wall lamp, standard-bearers of the warmth and wellbeing that are typical of the Mediterranean.

  • TMD

    By Santa & Cole In keeping with the premises of the highly regarded TMM lamp, of which Santa & Cole commissioned a table version from Miguel Milá at the time, Miguel tackled this project with the idea of a shade that rose like a flag up a mast. In order to reduce the number of sections he replaced wood with metal and the cross-shaped base for a circular one, taking up less space on an already crowded desk. However, he did maintain the ingenious system of using a simple rubber ring to affix the shade at the desired height, and the mechanism whereby the lamp is switched on and off by pulling on the electric cord. A metal washer on the shaft is used for wrapping and directing the cable, and forms an inconspicuous part of the design.

  • Trípode G6

    By Santa & Cole A bundle of three black tubes, joined like a set of chopsticks, holds up a generous ribbon shade. Trípode is a series conceived to lend plain rooms a warmer touch through the use of colour, and it comprises two sizes of table lamps and a widely known floor version – the G5 – considered to be a genuine icon of contemporary design: conventional, colourful and functional.

  • TMD

    By Santa & Cole A metal version of the highly regarded TMM lamp (with its wooden structure), this time with a circular base and extremely conservative sections, yet just as smart when it comes to adjusting the shade to the required height (using a simple rubber ring) and incorporating the same system where the light is switched on or off using the electric cable.

  • Diana

    By Santa & Cole Produced on the basis of the table models, these Diana and Diana Mayor floor lamps preserve the slenderness and clarity characteristic of the entire collection. They are formed by a central metallic shaft, the diameter of which gets thinner as it rises, supporting a wide linen shade in a smooth cone-like shape that disperses the light of two bulbs arranged in such a way as to avoid shadows forming on the shade.

  • Dórica

    By Santa & Cole This stunning allegory of an imaginary architectural order bears a majestic, yet slender vertical shape creating an interplay of contrasts between matter and light where the sturdiness of the heavy bronze base stands in contrast with the lightweight ribbon shade. Since it is prone to damage if held half way up, in order to make it easier to carry the top incorporates a leather gripping point. An optional, wider stabilising base is also available for use in busy areas. This is a superb, radiant sculpture of light created by one of Barcelona’s most renowned late XX century designer couples.
