Description

One of a quartet of sizes in the Bestlite pendant series, the midsize BL9 is a design-world icon with a timeless look and unrivaled function. Designed in 1930 by the Bauhaus-influenced British designer Robert Dudley Best, the light even resides in permanent collections at both the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Design Museum in London. Putting the focus on the industrially-rooted but very refined shade, this particular model makes a striking addition where directed light is needed, especially in a dining area.

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.”
