Description

With its mobile arm and shade, this wall lamp is perfect in a hallway, adjoining a desk or at bedside for reading—and, anywhere it’s placed, it’s also a veritable design icon. A wall-mounted extension of Robert Dudley Best’s timeless 1930 Bestlite, the signature adjustable arm can be positioned both horizontally and vertically and the distinctive shade is movable as well. The British designer was highly influenced by the modernist school of Bauhaus at the time and the lamp has been in continuous production ever since, a favorite of savvy design aficionados.

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.”
