Claudia Valsells and her chromatic language

Strongly linked to colour since the beginning of her practice as a mural painter, Claudia Valsells has partnered with architects and designers for over 20 years to define colours through her own studio arts&claus. After her expertise in colour forecasting and prescription, she went a step further becoming an artist, undertaking projects with her own distinctive chromatic language.

During the process of the colour study for Santa & Cole, Valsells developed the interaction of the selected colours as chromatic harmonies, which have been captured in six Neoseries, graphic work editions.

Miguel Milá and his formal timelessness

Awarded the Delta de Oro in 1964, the M64 lamp designed by Miguel Milá marked the beginning of the consecration of Spanish design as a professional discipline.

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of this milestone, Santa & Cole reintroduced it to its catalog and adapted it to the HeadLED System (Delta de Oro, 2013), providing it with better efficiency and lighting quality. The M64 lamp, now available in Valsells colors, continues to demonstrate the formal timelessness characteristic of the master Miguel Milá.
