The origin of the Bestlite has its roots in ideas that emerged from the Bauhaus, an establishment which championed 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, while studying in Paris and Dussledorf during 1930.
The Bestlite design was initially favoured by car mechanics because of its adjustability; however, the original swan-necked 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 English designers of the 20th century; the Bestlite remains an elegant testimony to his work.
First produced by the manufacturing firm Best & Lloyd, founded by Best's family in 1840, the Danish design firm GUBI took over the international rights for the Bestlite collection in 2004.
