Joan Antoni Blanc
Joan Antoni Blanc was born in 1940 in Tortosa, Tarragona, Spain. Together with his brother Oriol Blanc and Pau Joan Vidal he founded the design firm Estudi Blanc. They designed many items over the years. Lamps were designed for Tramo, Metalarte, Santa & Cole…
Joan Antoni Blanc was also involved in the birth of the EINA design school in 1967. EINA is the University Centre for Design and Art of Barcelona. It seems that he designed this series of lamps in the same year.
The Tramo – Trabajos molestos – Annoying works company was founded in the 1950’s by Miguel Milá together with two friends, architects F. Ribas Barangé and E. Pérez Ullibari.
Many lamps were designed, among others the TMC and TMM lamps in 1958 and 1961. These beautiful floor lamps are still in production by Santa & Cole. Later in the sixties he set up his own design studio.
In 1960’s Miguel Milá founded the the ADI-FAD, the Industrial Design Association, together with Antoni de Moragas, André Ricard, Bohigas, Cirici Pellicer, Manel Cases and Rafael Marquina.
Miguel Milá also designed lamps for the company of his brother Leopoldo, named Polinax. Among other things, Leopoldo designed one of the most iconic motorbikes of all time: the Montesa Impala and the Montesa Cota 247.
