Bestlite BL3 Floor Light Black                   

£719.00

Description

The origin of the Bestlite has its roots in the ideas emerging from a of revolutionary design school known as Bauhaus, which was a rebellion against tradition and sought to bring simplicity to the forefront.

English 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 Dussledorf. The light was initially favoured by car mechanics on account of its adjustability; however the swan-necked 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.

First produced by the manufacturing firm Best & Lloyd, founded by Best's family in 1840, in 2004 the Danish design firm GUBI took over the international rights for the Bestlite collection.

Best is now recognised as one of the great English designers of the 20th century and the BestLite remains an elegant testimony to his work.

This free-standing lamp has a fully adjustable arm and shade. Max 40 W E14 (bulb not included).
