Bestlite BL9 XL Pendant Light from GUBI

December 28, 2008

The design team at Danish furniture and lighting manufacturer GUBI, have designed the
Bestlite BL9 XL pendant light based on the iconic forms of the original Bestlite.

From GUBI:

Robert Dudley Best made the first drawings of Bestlite during his study stays as an industrial designer in Düsseldorf 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. Robert Dudley Best was the third generation in the Best & Lloyd lamp empire, founded in 1840. Best & Lloyd were famed suppliers to the British royal family, the Titanic and the Orient Express. Bestlite has been produced continuously since 1930.
