Description

British icon and statesman Sir Winston Churchill personally chose BL1 Table Lamp for his desk, cementing its maker Bestlite in the public imagination. Launched in 1930, British designer Robert Dudley Best created this clean-lined lamp with a flexible arm and movable shade in the spirit of the then-reigning school of Bauhaus. (Interestingly, an Architects Journal feature lauding Bestlite was the first evidence of Bauhaus in England.) With its refined functionality, Bestlite was first adopted by the Royal Air Force engineering departments but, more than 80 years on, today it is more commonly seen in a workspace, home office or even as bedside lighting.

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.”
