The GUBI Design Team has designed the BL9 XL based on Bestlite’s iconic forms.
Robert Dudley Best made the first drawings of Bestlite during his study stays as an industrial designer in Dusseldorf and Paris. In both cities, Best quickly started moving in the creative and innovative circles that developed around the emerging Bauhaus movement.
In 1932, Architects Journal proclaimed that Best had designed the first Bauhaus manifestation in England.
Robert Dudley was the third generation in the Best & Lloyd lamp empire, founded in 1840. Best & Lloyd were famed suppliers to the British Royal Family, the titanic and the Orient Express.
Bestlite has been produced continuously since 1930.
Various lamp options are available, including 600mm diameter with E27 socket.
