The Bestlite BL2 light 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. The new Bone China version offers a new and updated look to this already classic light.
Material/Colours: Brass and Bone China
Dimensions: Height: 50 cm x Width: 17.5cm x 16cm Diameter with 2 metres of cord
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.
