FAD Floor Lamp
Miguel Mila, 1973
Santa & Cole, Spain
Originally designed in 1973 for the offices of Barcelona’s decorative arts association, Forment de les Arts Decoratives (FAD), the FAD floor lamp is a study in contrast. FAD is a blend of the hollow and the solid, the dark and the light, the simple and the elegant. Mila also played up the aesthetic qualities, the sensual contrast of the two materials comprising FAD: the walnut wood stand, textured, grained, dark and firm, and the white linen shade, subtle, light, soft, and almost ethereal. A solid wood base moves up to a hollow wood shaft housing a metal tube containing the wiring, and allowing the shade to be adjusted for height.
Height adjustable from 119 cm to 150 cm, Base 50 cm, Shade Height 24 cm, Diameter 45 cm.
