Many architects and furniture designers of the Bauhaus era were intent on providing well-designed homes and impeccably manufactured furnishings for the "common man". In 1955, Barba Corsini, a leading functionalist architect, realised his contemporary vision through his renovation of the loft space and the furnishings he custom designed for "La Pedrera".
Antoni Gaudi, who originally designed "La Pedrera", is generally considered the great master of Spanish Modernism but his unique body of work cannot be defined by any single style or simple classification. Corsini was a great admirer of Finnish architecture, which he believed to be the finest in Europe on account of the powerful simplicity of the designs. The Pedrera ANA Pendant lamp is both modern, timeless and classic. The great feature unlike anything else designed is the perforated metal finish.

Barba Corsini (1916-2008) was a leading functionalist architect who won international praise for his architecture and his design for La Pedrera in Barcelona. 'Powerful simplicity' is perhaps an apt description of Corsini's personal design style, as represented by the Pedrera Collection. Joaquim Ruiz Millet (born 1955) founded Galeria H20 in Barcelona in 1989, where he furthered his activities as gallery owner, cultural agitator, curator of exhibitions, and editor of books and design objects. During the restoration of La Pedrera in 1991, he discovered the beauty of the great floor lamp PD2 and rescued it from being thrown away. Ruiz Millet started to collaborate with Corsini in order to relaunch the original designs designed for La Pedrera. As Corsini's protegé, Ruiz Millet wanted to help rescuing his work, make it more known and available for the public.
