The BestLite BL2 chrome armed version was designed in 1930 by the English designer Robert Dudley Best. Within a short period of time the BestLite lamp proved a great success and was proclaimed the first Bauhaus manifestation in the UK by the leading British publication Architects Journal.
During the second World War the BestLite achieved the status of a national icon when Winston Churchill had one standing on his desk.

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.
