Strolling through Barcelona in the 1960s, designer Miguel Milá found an abandoned opal globe in front of a glass factory. He picked it up, and over the years, it became the heart of this large family.

As its name suggests, Cesta / Cestita (Spanish for basket), was designed to hold this fragile piece.

Inspired by the traditional lanterns that light up homes along the coast, rural estates and open terraces, Cesta is one of the most iconic lamps created by Miguel Milá. This lamp object can be picked up and carried easily, ideal for both tabletops and floors.

The opal glass shade is supported by a beautiful pine wooden structure. It is produced manually by European craftsmen, using traditional steam bending techniques for the wood, which is delicately polished and sturdily put together.

Despite its peculiarity (or rather because of it) the lamps design and function remain contemporary.
