Bestlite Wall Lamp BL7 by Gubi
Design Robert Dudley Best, 1930
Designed by Robert Dudley Best in 1930, the Bestlite BL7 Wall Lamp celebrates elegant and clean lines with clear reference to the period of Bauhaus. With its contemporary look in various finishes and movable shade, the Bestlite BL7 Wall Lamp is optimal for the hallway, as a bedside lamp or above the kitchen counter. Let it stand for itself or combine it in pairs to create an expressive source of illumination.
The Bestlite lamp design was first adopted by garages and the Royal Air Force engineering departments due to its great functionality. A feature in Architects Journal lauding Bestlite with the title of the first evidence of Bauhaus in Britain brought the lamp to the attention of the design conscious. Public demand for the Bestlite lamps soon followed and, when Winston Churchill personally chose the Bestlite BL1 Table Lamp for his desk, Bestlite's iconic status was secured.
The Bestlite design stays close to its industrial roots and true to its original design. Bestlite is held in permanent collections at both the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Design Museum in London. Loved by architects, designers and design aficionados throughout its long history, today, Bestlite has become a contemporary classic.
