Design by Antoni De Moragas, 1957.
By Santa & Cole.
A timeless table lamp that is a beacon of modern design. The Moragas Table Lamp captures the pragmatic temperament of one of Spain's great philosophers of form. A central column of sapele wood supports a generous combination of light and shadow. The oversized circular shade is made of bookbinding tape. Because the ends of the tape are thicker, they create eloquent strips of light. Moreover, they heighten the impression of verticality in what is essentially a wide, round shade. The on/off switch is located on cord.
It is said that Moragas had this lamp on his desk and that he used the spaces between the tape to hold calling cards and memos to himself. A daring and rebellious architect, Moragas was a promoter of modern people-friendly architecture.

Since 1985, when Javier Nieto Santa, Gabriel Ordeig Cole and Nina Masó founded Santa & Cole, the sole purpose of the company has been industrial design, an art consisting of seeking the best of each object in order to offer a more pleasant experience in everyday life. Hence, Santa & Cole edit elements of domestic and urban furniture and lighting in a range that is only apparently disperse, converging upon a single concern: not to accumulate, but rather to select; not to enjoy quantity, but rather quality.View other products from Santa & Cole
