Miguel Milá. A life in design.

Santa & Cole Gallery


The exhibition seeks to give a fresh and renewed vision of Miguel Milá's figure, whose relevance transcends temporality, demonstrating the characteristic closeness and friendliness of the Catalan designer. It forms part of the Santa & Cole campaign aimed at connecting with new audiences through the promotion of the figure of Miguel Milá showcasing his prolific activity as a designer. David Martí, of Santa & Cole, explains: "We have been producing Miguel Milá's designs since 1986. Together we have generated a collection of 31 designs, available in our catalogue, and now we would like to internationally introduce the figure of Milá and all his work.” The exhibition will tour around the world staring in Asia, and then the United States and South America.

The Galería Santa & Cole includes the projection of a video directed by Apartamento Studios, together with current designs of the author, as well as original versions and sketches that show other creative facets of Milá's work.
