Santa & Cole: Miguel Mila: FAD Floor Lamp, imported from Europe.
Designed by Miguel Mila in 1963.
The FAD is a blend of the solid and the hollow, the black wood and the luminous white of the linen shade, sobriety and elegance. The base stretches out towards the four points of the compass without unnecessary drama or tension: it is a cross which rises towards the light, simple and basic, reaching upward in vertical symmetry.
Designed for the offices of Barcelona's Foment de les Arts Decoratives (FAD), this lamp soon became a cultural statement.
The central wood stand is particularly ingenuous: having cut the cylindrical block of wood in four sections, Miguel Milá hollowed out the central section almost up to its upper tip. The metal tube allowing the shade to be adjusted for height and the lamp's wiring are housed in this tube. The central hollow is closed off by the cross-pieces of the base.
Mila played up the aesthetic qualities, the sensual contrast of the two materials comprising this lamp: the wood stand, textured, grained and firm, and the linen shade, subtle and almost ethereal.
The FAD is also available in a smaller version with a set height, making it ideal for table tops. Both models are equipped with dimmers.
