Bestlite BL9 Brass Pendant by Gubi

Bestlite BL9 Brass Pendant


Designed by Robert Dudley Best. Designs from the Bauhaus era brought functionality and simplicity to the forefront, displacing all superficial ornamentation. Robert Dudley Best designed Bestlite in 1930. As the lamp was the first example of Bauhaus in the UK, strong arguments were needed before the lamp could be put into production.

The lamp was produced by the manufacturing firm Best & Lloyd, founded by Bests family in 1840. After mention in the prominent architectural magazine Architects Journal, the architectural community opened its eyes to the lamps potential. In 2004, the Danish design firm Gubi took over the international rights for the Bestlite collection.
