Description

Initially adopted by tailors due to its flexible arm and the possibility to direct the light without making shadows, this version of the Bestlite also makes a superb reading light at bedside or near a favorite armchair. Mounted on a swing arm, the stem of the light can be adjusted upwards or down and the shade is movable as well. Originally designed by Robert Dudley Best in 1930, BL10 also adds ineffable character and the unique appeal of a timeless icon to any interior.

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.”
