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.
