Description

Beloved by generations of designers and architects, BL2 is the classic Bestlite table lamp first designed in 1930 by Robert Dudley Best. The British designer was highly influenced by the school of Bauhaus in devising his clean-lined and elegantly functional lamp with a flexible arm and movable shade. Apropos for a workspace, home office or even as bedside lighting, Bestlite is held in permanent collections at both London’s Victoria & Albert Museum and among its early fans was Sir Winston Churchill.

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.”
