Gonzalo Mila was born in 1967 and studied architecture in Barcelona. In 1999, Mila joined the Urban Division of Santa & Cole, where he was responsible for several products. In 2001, he decided to go out on his own in order to pursue his true passion: furniture design.
Mila has created many urban elements that currently bring life to many Spanish streets, and his work has been acknowledged with various industrial design awards. In his own words, Mila seeks to design the "little things that surprise every day without gratuitousness, starting from new technologies or from applying traditional technologies to new concepts."
