Robert Dudley Best was a British manufacturer deeply involved with the Modern design movement in and immediately after the interwar years. He took over Best & Lloyd, his father's light industrial engineering works in Birmingham, having previously trained as a metal designer at art school in Düsseldorf. Gubi now produce the iconic Bestlite range and still look as stylish today as they did when they were first designed.
