Miguel Milá & Gonzalo Milà
Miguel Milá (Barcelona, 1931) began to work as an interior designer in the architecture studio of his brother Alfonso and Federico Correa. Later on, he would found his own industrial and interior design studio. Miguel Milá has played a fundamental role in the history of Spanish design. His work has basically focused on bringing tradition up to date. In 2008, he received the Compasso d’Oro in appreciation of his long career and great contribution to the promotion of Spanish design abroad.
Gonzalo Milà (Barcelona, 1967) started working in his father’s studio in 1988 while he was still studying his Bachelor of Architecture. When working in small-scale projects, he developed a taste for industrial design, so he decided to enroll in Elisava College. Since 2001 he leads his own studio where he produces street furniture, indoor and outdoor lighting, accessories and projects promoting the integration of wildlife into the city. He is strictly essentialist and his projects are human, close and based in the key fact of utility.
