Designer Joaquim Ruiz Millet's table lamp carries quite a history. It's an adaptation of legendary architect Barba Corsini's original floor lamp PD2, that he created for his remodeling of the prominent Antoni Gaudí landmark La Pedrera in Barcelona. Later, the 1955 renovation of the former laundry room and storage into apartments was torn down in the early '90s but Joaquim managed to save the original lamp and some other furnishings. Inspired by Corsini's powerful yet simple style, he created a smaller version of the light with the signature perforated lampshade, infused with an appreciative elegance and meticulous craftsmanship.

“I started out with two very strong designs, Bestlite—a Bauhaus collection designed in 1930—and Gubi Chair, designed in 2003” Jacob says (both available at A+R). “I felt they had something in common,” he continues. “Iconic appearance, functional design, high quality, aesthetic design language and adaptable for many different kinds of interiors. I took these values as a guideline for any new designs added to the collection ever since.”
