Product Description

The most celebrated piece by one of the masters of Spanish design, the TMM is an exquisite demonstration of formal serenity and functional efficiency. A base in the form of a cross supports the square shaft and the drum-shaped height adjustable shade.

Manufacture
The TMM lamp is a classic design, an object that will last forever. Its wooden shaft with the adjustable cross-shaped base is an unforgettable example of good design. Created by Miguel Mila in 1961 it received the ADI FAD Critics Prize in 1962 and has been reissued by Santa & Cole since 1988.

In 1962, Mila entered this wooden lamp with parchment shade in the Economic Furniture competition organized in conjunction with the trade fair for hotel fittings. He won the competition and the TMM was awarded the ADI FAD Critics Prize.

It is a basic prototype of a floor lamp; the drum-shaped shade moves over a vertical axis, which hides the light source, the glow in the centre which projects the light downward for reading or working or upwards for general effect.

The shaft has two sections, the lower half is square and connected to the cross-shaped foot, and the upper half is cylindrical to allow the shade to move freely. The height of the shade can be adjusted by means of a rubber slide. There is no switch: the lamp is turned on and off with a gentle flick of a black cotton cord.
The TMM produced in three types of wood: beech, wengue and cherry. The shade is available in beige or white. After a long career, the TMM is as fresh as ever.

The lamp is turned on and off by flicking the cord; raising or lowering the shade as needed has become a daily habit, and the lamp itself has become a companionable object, so much so that, as one fan says, "If I ever find myself without a TMM, I will have to rush out and buy another".
