Designed by Robert Dudley Best and crafted by Gubi, this space-saving and versatile Bestlite BL3 Floor Lamp is accented with a wide bone china shade and a brass frame. The origin of the Bestlite 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. 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 Dusseldorf. 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, the Danish design firm Gubi took over the international rights for the Bestlite collection in 2004. 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. Requires: 1 x Max 30W bulb (not included)
