Description

With its elongated swing-arm, the floor lamp BL4 is another useful variation on the iconic 1930 Bestlite by British designer Robert Dudley Best. A follower of the Bauhaus creative school, he devised this highly functional and subtly refined lighting with its signature adjustable arm that positions both horizontally and vertically as well as adding a movable shade. Revered by architects and design aficionados throughout its long history, BL4 makes for a distinctive and elegantly serviceable reading light as well as a knowing interior statement.

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.”
