Miguel Milá

Designer - Barcelona

Miguel Milá is a renowned industrial designer. In 1995, Santa & Cole’s Urban Division, now Urbidermis, asked him to design an urban bench. The initial briefing gave rise to the NeoRomántico bench (1995), followed by a family of benches that have colonised cities the world over thanks to their ergonomics and functionality. In his professional career, he has been awarded six Delta de Oro awards by the ADI FAD (the Industrial Design Association for the Promotion of Art and Design) and the national design award for 1987).

Miguel Milá was born in 1931 in Barcelona. He is the seventh child of a large family of eight (Pedro Milá Camps, his Uncle Pedro, contracted Antoni Gaudí to build the Casa Milá). In 1948, a young Milá entered the Barcelona Higher Technical School for Architecture (ETSAB) and seven years later, he began work in the architecture firm of his brother Alonso.

Even still, Miguel Milá was not convinced by the world of architecture. In 1956 he left his studies and carried out his first interior design commission for his Aunt Nuria Sagnier’s firm. Through this commission, he began to observe the lack of quality design objects for interiors, and started to experiment with various shapes and ergonomic forms. A year later, together with two architect friends, he founded Trabajos Molestos TRAMO: a company dedicated to the production and design of interior elements. This company gave rise to the creation of the iconic TMM (1958) and TMC (1961) lamps, now produced by Santa & Cole.

During the 70s and 80s, Miguel Milá created the Industrial Design Association for the Promotion of Art and Design together with André Ricard, Antoni de Moragas, Oriol Bohigas and Rafael Marquina (ADI FAD), in which he participated in numerous editions. He won various Delta de Oro awards for the design of furniture and interior lighting and at the same time also participated in European design forums and events. He travelled to Venice, London and Paris frequently and became more and more involved in the world of design.

In 1994, Santa & Cole’s Urban Division, now Urbidermis, commissioned him to design an urban bench. This collaboration gave rise to the NeoRomántico bench (1995). Over time, the urban furniture family grew; in 2011, the aluminium NeoRomántico Liviano was the first element of the urban space to receive the “Cradle to Cradle” environmental certification.

He also collaborated with Bet Figueras to create an elegant modular border for landscaped areas, the Robert (2003). Over the years, Miguel also collaborated with his son, Gonzalo Milá, another industrial designer, in the design of the Harpo family (2015), a simple element that can travel flat, and the Inner (2020), a comfortable, very hard-wearing element. His most recent collaboration explores the requirements of outdoor spaces for private use, with the Basic family (2020), a family of elements designed with urban use in mind, but with the softness of the residential world.

Over the years, Miguel has received numerous highly significant awards and recognitions. These include the National Design Award (1987), the Creu de Sant Jordi (1993), the ADI Golden Compass for professional careers in Industrial Design (2008) and the Medal of Merit in the Fine Arts (2016) granted by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport.
