Description

Showing off its industrial roots, the Bestlite wall light variation BL5 is both highly functional and elegantly engineered. The adjustable arm moves up and down and can be positioned horizontally or vertically and the shade is moveable as well. Designed by the British designer Robert Dudley Best in 1930, the utilitarian ethos and now-classic lines were influenced by the Bauhaus credo of the era. The lamp serves equally well mounted over a desk, at bedside for reading or even in the kitchen when the light needs to be directed at a workstation.

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.”
