Miguel-Mila-headshot_AJAR

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.
