Description

 With an industrial pedigree but interpreted with uncommon refinement, this pendant reflects the values of the entire Bestlite range introduced in 1930 by British designer Robert Dudley Best. A fan of the Bauhaus movement, Best's large version of his BL9 remains timeless today and is enhanced by the number of available versions that all ring true to the original. Apropos for larger rooms, the pendant produces a directed light perfectly suited for both mealtime tasks in the kitchen and convivial dining room settings.

Brand

Gubi

Now led creatively by the couple’s son Jacob Gubi Olsen, Danish brand Gubi was originally founded in 1967 as a vehicle for the modernist furniture designs and textile catalog of husband-and-wife Gubi and Lisbeth Larson. Under Jacob’s watch, the company added a global focus to its roots in Copenhagen with a cosmopolitan array of furniture, lighting and interior objects. Alongside standouts from the 20th century, he has introduced a new generation of designers from companies such as GamFratesi, Space Copenhagen and OeO Studio.

“I started out with two very strong designs, Bestlite—a Bauhaus collection designed in 1930—and Gubi Chair, designed in 2003” Jacob says (both available at A+R). “I felt they had something in common,” he continues. “Iconic appearance, functional design, high quality, aesthetic design language and adaptable for many different kinds of interiors. I took these values as a guideline for any new designs added to the collection ever since.”
