An exponent of a time when Spanish industrial design was just establishing itself as a professional discipline, this lamp was awarded the Gold Delta in 1964, the highest distinction for a product in Spain. The jury that year was chaired by leading Swiss designer and artist Max Bill, a champion of the Ulm School, who eloquently promoted it to the ultimate award. As a result, Miguel Milá, the then young designer of the lamp, affectionately called it the MaxBill lamp, though today it is known as the M64.
To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Santa & Cole is now reediting it in an LED version, with minimal changes to the neck to fit the HeadLed capsule, which affords greater light efficiency and quality. The M64 comes in four finishes (white, black, bright brass and polished aluminium), once again demonstrating the exquisite timelessness of Miguel Milá's designs.
