The origin of the Bestlite BL3 Floor Lamp has its roots in ideas that emerged from the Bauhaus, an establishment that championed a rebellion against tradition and sought to bring simplicity to the forefront.
British designer Robert Dudley Best drew the first sketches of the light that would be proclaimed as the first Bauhaus manifestation in England during 1930, while studying in Paris and Düsseldorf.
The Bestlite design was initially favoured by car mechanics on account of its adjustability; however, the swan-necked original BL1 lamp entered the nation's consciousness when it was pictured on Winston Churchill's desk in his air-raid shelter beneath Whitehall during World War II.
Best is now recognised as one of the great British designers of the 20th century, while the Bestlite remains an elegant testimony to his work.
First produced by the manufacturing firm Best & Lloyd, founded by Best's family in 1840, Danish design firm GUBI took over the production of this iconic light and continues to manufacture it to exacting standards to this day.
