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.
