Description

Robert Dudley Best’s bone china Bestlite BL7 Wall Lamp for GUBI is hailed as the first Bauhaus manifestation in England.

The BL7 is crafted from brass or chrome and completed with a bone china shade, offering a timeless source of illumination. 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.

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.

Requires: 1x max. 30W bulb (not included).
