Cestita Batería is the latest member in the Cesta family: a portable, cordless version. As with all of Milá’s objects, Cestita, designed in 1962, strikes a balance between rational functionalism and the legacy of local artisan creation. With this new version, technology helps to enhance its features, maintaining the warmth that is characteristic of the family.
The lamp is a kindred spirit of the mythical Tramo (Trabajos Molestos, annoying works in English) company founded by Milá in the early sixties in order to self-produce his creations: all manner of simple, essential objects that help transform a house into a home. Embodying freedom of movement, Cestita Batería is a lantern that endows the atmosphere with delight wherever it is taken, depicting shadow puppets in the garden or emanating light from every corner.
