Founded in the early sixties by Carlos Pablos and Leopoldo Milá, Polinax has been one of the most emblematic Spanish lighting publishers of the second half of the 20th century. Although it started out as a motorcycle accessories manufacturing company, it quickly began producing designs by the architects Alfonso Milá and Federico Correa, and later also by Miguel Milá.
This last name has been the great banner of the firm since it began its collaboration in 1963, with the production of designs previously produced by Tramo and others already projected together with Polinax, among which are the different versions of the Max Bill and M68 lamps.
At the same time, he also participated in the design and production of fireplaces, the first and most iconic being the Capilla of José Antonio Coderch, which he won in 1964 with the ADI/FAD Delta Award. Already in the 1970s, Polinax expanded its product typology and included pieces of furniture and urban lighting in its catalogues, many of them also designed by Milá.
